    I remember when TwinkleTONES used to be called TwinkleBONES before they changed their name. We had a fun time there on our honeymoon in 1996 and still have the video that we purchased from that night of all the fun and of us dancing.

    It was in the same location where Que Pasa is located now. My husband LOVED their hot spicy jerk ribs at Boonoonoonoos. I even still have one of their anniversary t-shirts they gave me one year.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Eagle Beach Boy,

    The restaurant called Portobello, at least the one I'm thinking of, was in the Renaissance Marketplace, at the end of the strip where the Dutch Pancake House is now.


    All long-time Aruba lovers,

    Restaurants in downtown Oranjestad seems to have quickly emerged as a favourite theme here, so I might as well continue; anybody remember a little Indonesian spot called (Please forgive the butchered spelling) Dwarang Java, or Java Cottage as we were told. It was tucked into a corner not far from where the Gucci store is now.

    At Dwarang Java, the little plastic sticks they put in the various dishes on the rijstafel were colour-coded for a reason. I found out the hard way what the red stick meant. Calling the "Amstel fire dept" was a big mistake; it only helped spread the heat around.

    This thread is so neat!

    The Italian restaurant I am thinking of was near the grocery store behind the Renn.

    That was the first place I ever tried jerk ribs. I was probably 8 or 10 years old and they brought out a fire extinguisher with the plate lol. They were definitely hot and spicy and I think helped paved the way for my love of spicy foods. That's awesome you still have one of their shirts. I'm gonna have to mention to my parents that Que Pasa is in the same location...they always make a point to go to Que Pasa and I know they loved Boonoonoonoos too.

    You may be thinking of Giannis (not the newer one in the high rise area, but the original one across from Chez Matilda). I remember it being there for only a year or two.

    Another restaurant that we loved and has been long gone was called La Paloma. They used to have the best veal dish on the island.
