Nice atmosphere, loved by the kids

Nice atmosphere in the old plantation house, live music (not every evening) and lots of things for kids to do (minigolf, park). Big portions, but could have used a bit more spices.

This was a very nice surprise.. The restaurant is hidden in a non-tourist area, and it's a big compound... At night, it looked like a South American courtyard, with dim lighting and brick walls. Very stylish clientele, but no mandatory dress code. Food was great, especially the picanha (?) Brazilian-style steaks. They were also having a free salsa lesson for... More

We visited this restaurant because we heard some good stories from travellers we met on Curacao. Unfortunately, the experience was a bit disappointing. The friendly waitress told us they only had 'sauvignon blanc and chardonnay' as a white wine which stroke us as rather unusual; later on it turned out they had more than ten varieties in white wines (domains)?...

We live on the island close to this restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. First the waitress asked us for drinks. We ordered Sangria, unfortunately the glasses she gave us (instead of placing them on the table) where filthy. Next we wanted to order food and asked for the specials (displayed at the entrance of the place).... More

We ate here twice. Food was good and the salad bar was very enjoyable. Prices are reasonable. It is not cheap but it isn't expensive. This is a good place to bring children.

To start the service was great. The atmosphere made our dining experience that much more enjoyable. We had the specials, with that you get the salad bar. We had the beef tenderloin with blue cheese sauce, the blue cheese was not overwhelming just brought the perfectly cooked meat to a new level. We also had the Mai Mai with rice.... More

We went to the Landhuis to take a look and see if it was something that we would like. So we have some appetizers and a couple of drinks. The service was excellent and the food was good. Then as we were finishing up our appetizers a fairly big rodent ran under our table. What else is there to say?

The food is good and nicely presented. The portions are big. I was a bit desappointed with the salad bar... nothing special there. The staff was very friendly and the place itself is very pretty. You can notice the effort to make this place pleasant.

I dreamt many years ago that I would own and run a restaurant in a treehouse. I never did own a restaurant, but I was lucky enough to get a chance to dine in it. The food is as spectacular as the view!!! I have been having "food parties" since I got to Curaçao two days ago. I have eaten... More
