Stopped by for lunch

The food was good. Service was a bit slow and the wait staff seemed to struggle a little bit to understand English. Reasonable prices, scenery was nice.

I went here for lunch as it was recommended by a friend. Service was very slow, and every time I ordered a dish they would come back 10 minutes later saying they didn't have it anymore. The same was for the drinks menu. I ordered a mojito and they came back saying they didn't have any, then I tried ordering... More

we actually wanted to go there for Pizza but it is only served after 5pm so instead we ordered burgers which were beyond expectations - they were really delicious! as a desert we had brownies and a fruit bowl which was very nice too. the only downside was probably - as already mentioned in previous comments - that staff takes...

The food was good, but we were mostly ignored by the waiters and waitresses. Took them about 15 minutes to come back after giving us the menu, had to ask for water several times, long wait to get bill. Who knows, maybe it was a bad night, but it spoiled what could have been a nice dinner.

We went for a late lunch. Horrible service by the manager. Very tough individual. The place was empty. She acted as if she was the most proper waitress at a five star restaurant in nyc. This is a beach hut/restaurant at best. Food was ok and appropriate. Beach was nice. Service was the problem. Stop acting as if it's a... More

Zanzibar used to be great. Great food, great service. The food still is nice. Not very special, but OK. The ocean view still is awesome, one of the best sun sets in Curaçao. But the staff... Who is in charge over there? Don't you train your people? We waited from 7:30 PM till 9:30 PM just to hear they forgot... More

We stayed nearby and came here quit a lot . Drinks are nice and cold. Food is reasonable for the price we payed. We had very nice sandwiches for lunch and barbecuede meat for dinner. The mochitos are top. Service is relaxed and friendly

I went out last Saturday at Zanzibar (11 April) with my boyfriend and whilst we were ordering drinks at the cocktailbar together there was a security guard behind us talking to another guy. All of a sudden a hand went up my dress and pinched my bum. I turned around and both the security guard and the guy stared at... More
