On a trip to Baby Beach we saw Kamini's new restaurant. Should be opening before the end of the month. We got in touch with her through Facebook and... More

Kamini is a beautiful woman inside & out and her food reflects her. I am in love with her cooking. She is warm and hospitable with a beautiful, bright green restaurant opening soon. We talked for hours about life and I felt so comfortable at her home. She recommended a local carnival in the San Nicholas area that I probably... More

First, I want to thank the community of travelers on Trip Advisor for the great reviews for Kamini and making me aware that I could just pick up the phone and just call Kamini while she and her husband Peter are transitioning to their new location. We had the opportunity to spend the evening at Kamini and Peter's house where... More

We've been to almost every 5 star restaurant on the island over the course of 3 visits and Kamini is the most impressive chef we've had yet. If you want an authentic Aruba experience provided by the most welcoming and friendly host than Kamini's place is for you. She was kind enough to show us her new restaurant prior to... More
