Fodor's Expert Review Gasparito Restaurant & Art Gallery
You can find this enchanting hideaway in a beautifully restored 200-year-old cunucu (country) house in Noord. Dine indoors, where works by local artists are showcased on softly lit walls, or on the outdoor patio. Either way, the service is excellent. The Aruban specialties like pan bati and keshi yena come from centuries of tradition, and the standout dish is the Gasparito chicken; the sauce recipe was passed down from the owner's ancestors and features seven special ingredients, including brandy, white wine, and pineapple juice. (The rest, they say, are secret.) Vegetarian entrées and American-style ribs round out the menu of local dishes that include fresh fish and seafood. Only 20 guests per evening—choice of seatings at 6, 7, or 8 pm.
