Restaurant Anno 1877 is located in a historic 18th-century building on Wilhelminastraat in Oranjestad.
The official opening on May 5th took place in the presence of friends and followers, for a two-hour cocktail hour with tasty bites.
The old cunucu house used to be the home of Cuba’s Cooking, today, it hosts Chef Linda Pool, backed-up by chef-partner Annie.
Chef Linda has her loyal local following, a clientele that is fond of her classic French / International cooking, and likes to attend her special, monthly, culinary events, which will also continue at the new location.
Chef Linda who was in charge of the kitchen at the fondly remembered Chez Mathilde, went out on her own and ran Twister Cafe for a few years, later also the food & beverage operation of Talk of the Town Resort – still open until later this year, but recently a friend told her about the historic Anno 1877 location, prompting her to make the move.
Linda reports that her brother, bartender Heinj doubled up as carpenter and built the dining room’s rustic tables and chairs. Tall and elegant Maitre d’ Romalo is a familiar face, previously at Wilhelmina!
Look forward to the Asparagus menu, soon, following a successful Mother’s Day event, with an endless parade of small delectable bites. The three cunucu dining rooms accommodate just 32 reservations, so do call before your head out the door.
Wilhelminastraat 27, Oranjestad, Aruba, 583 0020, the restaurant is ready to receive patrons looking for tasty food, at reasonable portions, and fair prices!
