We were able to stop here on our tour. We got to try the beer and Pan Bati. Cute restaurant and free wi-fi. Authentic Aruba food without the crowds.

My boyfriend had the chicken Alfredo and I the Fried Red Snapper. The food was so well seasoned and the service was spot on. It is a local spot with great food and an Island vibe (flies included) with a smile.

Not far at all. Approximately a 15 minute walk. You can also use the trolley that runs downtown to get closer to the restaurant.
