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 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.

We were able to sit outside, there was not too much activity. I was really missing my dose of good espresso, and the place didn't disappoint. We had a small late-morning breakfast, tried a couple of different local appetizers, and then a couple of beers. The food is not spectacular, but they have good fresh ingredients.

This is a great place to have a beer in the afternoon or an early dinner. It's the closest you can get to a bistro in Holland or Belgium. The food and the atmosphere are just great. I liked it more than the restaurants in Punda, which tend to be more touristy and expensive.

They were packed when we came to eat and they were very accommodating and set up a table for us over on the side. Service was pretty good and the food was pretty good as well. Nothing spectacular but it was worth the time and money :)

Warning for American friends: this place is just like what you would get in a bistro / café in Belgium or The Netherlands. It is bit high end food and it is not Michelin star service. Request change s on a dish is not recommended That being said, this place is just like being on a main square in Brussels... More
