We stopped in for lunch waiting for our condo to get ready. Cute place, friendly service, in no particular hurry. We had the grouper lunch specials with plantains and rice, very good.

Decided to try this restaurant since we like to try local food wherever we go. We enjoyed the food (and cocktail) and friendly service. I tried the national dish "Keshi Yena" which was very tasty. The Aruban corn bread was good and not too sweet....More

We tried Old Cunucu House for the first time and generally found the food to be very good. Nothing spectacular but a nice local restaurant with friendly service. Prices were reasonable, too. Worth a try and not far from the hotels or time share establishments.

The ambiance is rustic and like an old home off the main highway, Don’t let it fool you...the food is excellent and worth the visit. We had the goat and the vegetarian pasta, when we finished, our plates we clean!!

My family is from the Caribbean so I know what authentic food when I taste it. From the service, to the food to even the neighborhood dog that strolled through, we felt like we were eating at a local spot that is unpretentious yet high...More
