We came here on recommendation from the hotel. You will need a reservation, which can be made at the last minute, and be aware they have a smoking and non-smoking area outside. This is actually nice, since other restaurants allow smoking everywhere outside. The food is a combination of Dutch and Caribbean, beautifully presented and delicious. The owner is Dutch... More

My husband and I went there for dinner on a Saturday night and I must say this was the best food I had on the island so far. The lady and gentleman working there I think are the hardest working ppl on the island and I was very pleased with the service. Food took some time to come out but... More

Walked about 300 yards from our hotel Avila in Willemstad and entered a lovely garden setting with every table seated. The atmosphere was exquisite. Nothing pretentious. Service was attentive and ever so genteel. Take your time and do try the local specialty which is the national dish, Keshi yena. Every bit of food on this plate is a taste treat.... More

We had a great dinner at the restaurant, and deserves its rank on being one of the better establishments on the island. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxed. Outdoor seating with sparse decoration, but still some personality. Service was good and attentive, despite some hiccups regarding knowledge of pairing the menu with wine. But, I'm sure the manager would have... More

We enjoyed our evening at Rozendaels. The evening weather was perfect for outdoor dining. The owner seated us and, after the server took our drink orders, returned to discuss the menu and take our dinner orders. He was friendly and informative and wanted to make sure we were happy with our food choices. The food was fresh, well prepared and... More

We were pleasantly surprised by Rozendaels. Although other reviews we read said to get Keshi Yenna at the Belle Terrace at the Avila Hotel (don't do it), we got it here. After sampling the local traditional dish at 3 different restaurants, none compared to Rozendaels. All of the food here was excellent and very reasonably priced. The waiter was funny... More

Ate at this restaurant twice. Had dishes with local flavor. All were well prepared with nice seasoning and good presentation. Not spicy but well seasoned. Everything was fresh. The menu is in English. The staff had limited English but were friendly. Restaurant opens at 5 PM. Walked from our hotel about a mile away. Area has dark areas but does... More

After dining once at Rozendaels while staying at the Avila hotel, we returned for a second meal. The site is close enough that you can see the restaurant sign when you exit the parking lot of the Avila. (If the Avila hotel staff tell you they don't recommend walking from the hotel, don't worry! Prudence is always advisable, but we... More

My Dutch friends like to joke that "Dutch Cooking" is too often a synonym for "fried" or "with cheese". Rozendaels will break all of those previous associations. Salads were fresh and well dressed, and for dinner we went for the filet combinations. Nothing fried, just nice grill flavors, solid but subtle sauces, and superb service.
