Gostoso was gostoso! Absolutely delicious. We had the grilled garlic calamari, Madeira style snapper, and stewed goat, all of which were great. The house spicy sauce is a must try. A couple things to note... 1)Very limited & confusing parking situation with 3 spots directly to the left of the outdoor seating and a couple on the opposite side of the street. 2) Our waitress put us through 21 questions when we first got there. We kind of felt like we were being interrogated when we first got there. They asked where we were staying, the room #, our last name, country of origin... We felt like we were going through customs. It seems they keep some kind of book for the restaurant? Regardless, I would ease up on the questions. It was uncomfortable. Besides that, the meal was great and I would recommend trying it out while I'm Aruba.

We tried the sushi with an Aruban twist and really enjoyed it. The portions are perfect for lunch and the food was tasty. It was a very home cooked style meal. Good service and ambiance. The lunch fixed price was very affordable and gave one plenty to choose from, including dessert. It is a short 15 minutes walk from the Renaissance Hotel.

Found this restaurant via Tripadvisor. It's a little out of the way and we were wondering if we were even going in the right direction. Once in the restaurant we were immediately warmly greeted and seated. The service was perfect all the way to the end where the server inquired if we needed a taxi. The food was superb. It's a must stop during your trip to Aruba.
