Palm Beach



The perfect french caribbean fusion unique to Aruba

Live Reservation sm

Successful restaurant for over 10 years


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.


Reservations MUST be made at least 24 hours in advance.


The deposit is not refundable after booking on Vacationstore. Any cancelation on vacationstore will be credited as vacation dollars and can be used for other packages on Vacationstore.

We had a fabulous, relaxing dinner in what felt like an intimate setting inside. Julian was our server and he did a magnificent job! he was attentive but definitely not intrusive. He was very helpful when we asked for suggestions or details about a menu item. We definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice, quiet dinner!

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!

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!
