Nice, busy place for a drink

My wife and I visited the property for a drink only. Located right downtown, the place is usually busy with locals and tourists. Prompt service, ice cold drinks, outside seating and a nice location turns it out to be a nice option anytime in the day.

We've been in this place so many times and we are not surprised that it is such a popular place. the food is okay, the spot is attractive and the atmosphere is very, vry relaxing. everybody has a great time. The courses on the manuy are names after the royal family (amusing!). There is absolutely not choice that I could... More

Service: We went on a Sunday morning with very little people, yet we had to wait 5 minutes to get a menu and then another 10 before our order was taken. When I complained, the hostesses thought it was funny... good on them. Food: The orange juice was very fresh. The pancakes (well, if you want to call them that)... More

I went to Plein Cafe Wihelmina based on the reviews from this site. I am a vegetarian/picky eater and I was able to find meals that I could eat. My fav thing was the olive and sun dried tomatoes appetizer. The service was good and the prices were very affordable. I recommend eating at PCW.

We had lunch here on a Sunday as they are one of only a handful of restaurants that are open on Sunday. As in Bonaire, the sidewalks are rolled up on Sundays on this island. My wife had the chicken and mozarella pannini with a flavourful pesto sauce. I had their version of a Philly cheese steak sandwich, which was... More

You won't find fine dining, but you will find decent Dutch food and a hand variety of cold beer. We ate there three times, it's a nice casual place to hang out

Food was good. Had some real Dutch stuff! Try it. Nice to sit for an hour, but then it gets boring. Not the best location. Wait staff somewhat disinterested, and they were Dutch... Overall 3.5/5 is fair in my view.

While in Willemstad, we ate here 4 times! Our favorites were the shoarma chicken sandwich, goat cheese salad, chicken Caesar salad, and their coffee! The service is great, and the prices are way more reasonable than most of the surrounding restaurants. I loved the outdoor seating as well!

We stopped here for a drink. It was nice and refreshing to get a couple cold beverages after a walk in the sun. We got a Guinness and a lemon daiquiri.
