Henri Charrière, the Frenchman named after the butterfly (papillon) tattoo on his chest was the first convict to escape from Devil’s Island. Charrière’s thrilling story has been the concept behind Papillon Restaurant in Aruba. The design, décor, and especially the restrooms wink at the thirteen terrible years Papillon spent in prison in French Guyana. The menu reflects the Frenchman’s arduous journey to freedom: classic French dishes have been dusted with daring Caribbean flair. The spacious outside terrace is perfect for casual fine dining in Aruba.
