Nice Bistro with outside dining in town with wifi

Great place in the middle of things for a good meal and reasonable price compared to most places. They had a good selection of beer and the food and service was very good.

I have been there 2 times recently and I liked it. Its more a cafe/light snack place to me, even though it has a good variety of selections to eat. Due to its location (just a straight short walk from the wooden bridge past Pehna), it is always busy with persons sitting and persons passing across. The majority of the... More

Lovely plaza cafe/restaurant beside the subway sandwich shop about 8 minutes from swinging bridge. Food is very yummy, good selection, big portions and good prices. I recommend the large goat cheese salad if you are very hungry. Affordable cocktails of the day for about 5 bucks. If eating at night, make sure to put on repellant.

Very attentive service, good quality food and a decent selection of beers. It's not necessarily a place a foodie would visit (no complaints, just nothing special), but a great place for spending an afternoon or evening watching people or reading a book.

I went here for lunch just because I stumbled upon it when I was looking for Wilhelmina Park, but I didn't know of any restaurants there and it was a late lunch so the place was not busy but the service was very good and fast and the prices are good value, since so many places feel like a rip-off...

In the heart of Willelmstad, this cafe is right opposite the parliment and court buildings so seems busy. There for breakfast. I had the American which wasn't bad but not great either. My partner had the French breakfast, again average. Surprised the even charged 4 NAF for milk to put in my tea !!

We walked over the bridge on Sunday morning for an early lunch, and we were delighted with our choice of Wilhelmina! It is a popular little outdoor cafe in a lovely setting. Both our food and service were very good. We had a tenderloin wrap and a fishburger, and we were surprised at the generous portions! Both the wrap and... More

After a long tour bus ride around the island, we needed to eat dinner. After venturing from Otrabonda to Punda via the free ferry we found this place. It took a while for us to be recognized, but the waitress quickly knew we were English speaking and gave us the appropriate menus. For less the $40 we had a sandwich... More

Cool cafe nestled in the middle of Willemstad's 'Union Square' i guess you could call it. Prices were great, and the food not too bad either. Staff was friendly, but like most places on the island, a bit on the slower side. I've come to terms with that being the speed of service on all islands though. Great place to... More
