Papillon Restaurant, Aruba, DWI

Papillon is located in the new “Village” commercial area, across the street from the Radisson Hotel along Aruba’s Palm Beach.

I prefer to eat inside but this time I took a seat outside, which turned out to be okay as the breeze was gentle and cool. There were three of us, each with different tastes. Escargot is a favorite, and upon finding it on the menu, it was ordered by one of our group. Here’s the presentation.

papildService at Papillon was professional and attentive. Wines were had by the glass and they were worthy of the prices. The cost of eating here is at the very upper limit of my budget. For a special night out, it was worth it.

Bon dia from Aruba.
