Check out the restaurant reviews here:

Reviews | Aruba Restaurants

We ate at Gostoso and loved it. Great food, but it's a bit hard to find. I would agree that Yemanji was a tad bit better, but I wouldn't replace Gostoso. Madame Janette's was our least favorite. If you don't eat seafood or pork, it's a very limited menu. I'd go back to Gostoso before Madame Janette's.

If you can, get the Visit Aruba card. Saves you $$.

Where are you staying?

Have a great trip!

I Love Aruba Re: Restaurant Itinerary

I loved Gostosos, too. It's now on my "must do" list. I haven't been to MJ's in years, and have no desire to go back.

Suisse Chalet is another favorite. No trip would be complete without having a couple meals there.

Cooks is also on my "must do" list, and I can't wait to see all the new renovations.

One Happy Island Re: Restaurant Itinerary

Have a great trip and welcome to the board. I am leaving for Aruba in 2 hours! Maybe we will run into each other somewhere on the Island. Kent
