One of the first restaurants to feature traditional island dishes when they opened their doors over 25 years ago, The Old Cunucu House is an essential destination for veteran vacationers.

Colonial influences of the Spanish, Dutch, English and French have all left their mark on Aruba’s native cuisine and The Old Cunucu embraces them all. Enjoy grandma’s “secret recipes” for seafood, fresh-caught fish, beef, pork and poultry, as well as the signature goat stew. Nobody can resist the charm of the beautifully restored landmark farmhouse, which offers dining in air-conditioned comfort or under the stars in their lovely gardens. Affordable and delicious, The House is where the authentic tastes of Aruba call home.
