French - Caribbean


"Successful restaurant for over 10 years" 

Papillon Restaurant in The Village, across from the Hilton Aruba Carribean 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!


Our staff were masks all the time. If not do not hestitate to report.

We offer a QR code on the table so menus are not handed out. (regular menu available on request)
