An open air restaurant in the Arikok National Park. If you are lucky enough to find your way here, you will experience a true, local restaurant in the middle of this amazing landscape. We are not foodies, but have eaten out a lot -- all kinds of cuisines, big cities, little towns, coastal beach areas here and abroad. The grilled... More

We went to Arikok national park on our own (not with a group tour) and this was perfect find :) cold drinks and delicious food for reasonable prices, regarding to the fact that this is probably the only place to eat&drink here. If you want to visit this restaurant, you dont have to pay entrance fee to Arikok. We paid,... More

Located in the national park on the east side of the island. Fantastic fresh dishes, have whatever the catch of the day is. View is incredible while you sit and eat. Great place to take a break while touring the national park.

I just finished lunch, and it was the best grilled snapper I've ever had. Just a couple of snapper steaks grilled without any detectable seasonings. The Keshi yena was also good. It's a good place for lunch inside Arikok National Park, and yes, I would eat here again.

If you have read other reviews I have written them you'll know that I love restaurants with a view and this one delivers big time. Located in the Arikok National Park this small restaurant has great views of the beach and ocean. In previous years we have just stopped for a drink but this time decided to have lunch there....

After driving through the bumpy roads of the national park, this place was a welcomed site to take a break. We had frozen daiquiris and wings which was perfect. They had a pretty good menu of both drinks and food considering their location.

We stopped by here after 4x4 ing all morning. My girlfriend says they have the best mixed drinks she had the entire 8 day vacation here. Food is pretty good but the location and the staff are the best! The owner told us about the well they own near Fontein Cave just up the road and the fish the clean... More

On our two weeks in Aruba each year we always visit the National Park at least once, if not twice. Every time we're there we have lunch or dinner at Boca Prins Restaurant. Fabulous fresh seafood and also burgers and fries your kids will eat. Today I had the Grilled Jumbo Shrimp and I changed the standard sauce from the... More

This was our third visit to this restaurant located inside of Arikok National Park. We love the view, laid back atmosphere, great service and fresh food. We usually stick to local fresh fish dishes. The grilled catch of the day is always amazing.

You have just trekked through Arikok Park and you are hungry - where do you go? Here to a culinary savior in the middle of no place. Food may not be 5 star quality but it is edible and reasonably refreshing. Opportunity to stop and enjoy the sites also has value. Think of it as an upscale fast food place... More
