The perfect french caribbean fusion unique to Aruba

Dining experience with Papillon Restaurant:

Papillon Restaurant in The Village, across from the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort in Palm Beach invites you back to history for a formidable exploration, much like Steve McQueen as real-life French prisoner "Papillon" in the famous 1974 movie.

The décor, the decorations and especially the restrooms wink at the movie and are the concept behind our lovely restaurant.

Our menu also reflects the Frenchman's arduous journey to freedom: classic French dishes with daring Caribbean flair.

The spacious outside terrace is perfect for casual fine dining; the iron bars, flecks of rust and stains on the walls make one very glad not

to be in Papillon’s shoes but in beautiful Aruba instead!

We have an extensive Wine List make sure to have a look at it.

Service by Diego was excellent, as well as, the grouper and shrimp, I liked the lemon risotto; it was a first, tasty and plate appeal!
Russell Trong
- Sugarmill Woods, Florida
Great dining experience from start to finish. The lobster bisque was the best I've had with generous portions of lobster. The Burratta salad was beyond amazing! Entrees of chicken and cod were equally delicious! We had the dessert special of carrot cake with chocolate ice cream, and at the risk of sounding like a broken record, that too was the best I ever had! I would certainly go again and suggest you give it a try while in Aruba too!
