Perfect little outdoor dinner spot

Ideally situated only a few yards from the Avila Hotel, this restaurant is charming and offers a wide range of menu options at reasonable (for the area) prices. The food was very good. Our only complaint was the service (something which we have found is often a problem on the island): Our server... read more

We walked to Rozendaels from Scharloo, and found it a pleasant evening dining experience, with high quality food and a nice atmosphere. We dined outside, where there is extensive seating. It's a place you might find a table when the small boutique restaurants are full, and the choices suited all our tastes (including one vegetarian and one with a sensitive... More

We had dinner here on a Thursday night and we didn't have a reservation. We didn't have any problem getting a table. The decor and ambience are nice and relaxing. The menu and winelist were good. Our meal was delicious and the service was friendly.

I don't have any complain to say about this marvellous restaurant. Good cuisine, everything was delicious, the service was kind and helpful and the restaurant itself is quite charming... but if I have to add something to improve I would dare to say that the portions are a little bit small according with the prices even more the dessert which...

Lovely outdoor place to eat and great service for Curacao! We had really nice meal and a great time! BUT.: be sure to book in advance otherwise you will be sat at the 1 free table that sits on the road by the door. We made our reservations pretty last minute and this is where they wanted to seat us.... More

You might not realize when you walk right by it, but this restaurant does some quality local dishes at a reasonable price. The owner is incredibly friendly and will make sure you have a great time while eating the right food to suit your appetite. We did not make reservations but I believe they are encouraged. It's a very small... More

On Jan 1 most places around Hotel Avila was closed so we ended up at Rozendaels at random. Almost 8pm and no reservation was no problem, the owner found us a table immediately. The tuna tartar was good and the gambas in tomato sauce was excellent. The owner also told us the story of Hotel Avila and the old penitentiary... More
