The restaurant is much better than its website

I'd read good reviews but the website looked dated so I was skeptical but we went anyway and loved it. The menu is sophisticated, the service is excellent as well as the atmosphere. We had the Tuna Crudo for an appetizer, the tenderloin 'A la Macho' and the Dradu fish.

As owners of a quality tourism business, we only recommend restaurants to our divers that are consistently excellent. In Curacao, restaurants come and go all the time. But Rozendaels is the one restaurant where we have personally enjoyed the consistently excellent food and service for many years, and the one that we recommend over any other to our clients (who...

My wife and I enjoyed Rozendaels. It was a good choice for an enjoyable meal, although a step behind Fishalicious and The Wine Cellar. My wife had the local Kesha Yena (very good) and I had the fish stew dish (also good). This restaurant is a good choice when you've already eaten at the superstar restaurants.

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
