Owner description: Experience beautiful composed, orchestrated and arranged music with wonderful romantic lyrics sung by Fred de Jong. Order local food and delicious drinks while watching our Aruba Sinatra Dinner Show at The Old Cunucu House Restaurant or ask for Dinner Special Menu. The show takes place every Thursday from 7:30 till 9:30 pm and the Show Ticket is only $15.00 per person (food and drinks not included). For children up to and including 11 years old the Show Ticket is only $7.50 (food and drinks not included). Enjoy an enchanting Sinatra Show featuring Fred de Jong with songs such as "Fly Me To The Moon", "I've Got The World On A String", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "My Way", "New York - New York", "The Way You Look Tonight" and many more… What is an Aruba Sinatra Dinner Show experience like? The show is set at a traditional Aruba restaurant in a separate area with capacity for 40 people divided over about 15 tables. The food is native Aruba cuisine which has been influenced by colonial Spanish, French, and Dutch cuisine and is served in a 150 year old refurbished farm house. The dress is casual evening attire. The restaurants is old style where orders are taken on paper not computers. My goal is to provide our guest with an intimate setting where our guest can relax and interact with me instead of a large impersonal Las Vegas style show room. I have selected beautiful and romantic arrangements that are pre-recorded. This gives the feel of a big band / an orchestra but allows me to offer the show at a much lower cost. I do not try to mimic the commercial recordings of Sinatra but instead offer my interpretation of Franks relaxed and informal live style. The show is about 2 hours which gives you time to order and enjoy your food and drinks during the show without arriving early. The food is coursed over the evening as is typical in European restaurants where dining is an experience not just a meal. I think the music of the great American Songbook is special and worth preserving. Come let me share it with you in a special evening off the strip.

A nice way to spend an evening. You can tell Fred DeJong really loves what he does and gives you a good 2 hours of great songs from Sinatra,
We also got to enjoy some very authentic Arubian food, different but tasty. The service was good, they even moved our table, literally, to make us more comfortable.
The restaurant itself is also very cool older home tucked back in a neighborhood.

If you like Sinatra but don't expect the real thing you will enjoy this.

Dear Valued Guest,

I am very happy you have spend your evening in a nice way and indeed I love what I am doing in the show very much.

I am very happy to read you enjoyed the food and the service too. I think it is very challanging to taste something different sometimes, but you always have the option to order something international in this restaurant. Also the simple fact of moving a tabel can give an extra touch to the service level.

I will always try approach the real thing as much as possible and indeed 90% of the people enjoyed this show since the day we started, but as we all know the last 10% improvement takes 90% of the effort :). Frank would says something like: "Do it again and again and again until you get it right!" And he sure did get better and better after each decade.

Thankful regards,
Fred de Jong

So, if you're in Aruba, into Sinatra and material broadly defined as the "American Songbook" you want to head to the Cunucu House Restaurant and catch Fred de Jong. You'll soon discover that Mr. de Jong understands and loves this material and has worked very hard to capture the phrasing and mannerisms of "old blue eyes." No small feat for any entertainer....especially one who is European...

Mr. de Jong is backed only by recorded instrumentals of the tunes he sings. The show was fun, fast-paced, entertaining and well worth the nominal cover charge. Check it out and enjoy the show and the great, affordable Aruban cuisine.

My husband and I enjoyed the show very much. We have talked about quite abit sense we've been home. It was a nice way to celebrate our anniversary,especially when he sang a song my husband requested so we could dance. The food was great,the service was great and we enjoyed the company of all the other guests. The pictures that were taken of us dancing were absolutely great. Would really ;like to see this show again on our next trip to Aruba.
