Chef's Garden

Join us in the Chef's Garden.

It's time to give executive chef Juan Ludena his creative freedom outside the kitchen of Papillon Restaurant. You will be served a 6 course surprise menu that will show his international flavors and  creativity with refined dishes. 


Chef Juan Ludena is already a well - known name on Aruba. Chef Juan attended culinairy school in the Netherlands where he worked with several of the best Dutch chefs, including 2-star Michelin chef Jermain de Rozario (Restaurant 2* 'de Lindehof' and 1* 'de Rozario') who taught him all the tricks of the trade. Back on Aruba he became Executive Chef of Papillon Restaurant. 


 The secret garden is located in a local home, a replica of a traditional Aruban "cunucu" house. The tropical garden is the setting for a magical in-home private dining experience.

This is your chance to meet him in person and get to know the face behind the flavors.
