upscale, lovely service. Great food and great wine! the owner and chef has put a lot of thought into this restaurant design. Don't let the street view put you off, its the inside which is wonderful. A delight to your culinary senses. Spice quest offers fusion cooking with local products and european flavors. Wonderfully done. The ambiance is semi-open sitting... More

I have had dinner here and had the surf n turf. I thought the lobster was good but the steak was very thin sliced (3 or 4 pieces) and had no taste... And the check was tremendously high! Which usually is not an issue if the food is exquisite. The service anda

I had a business lunch here, and really enjoyed it. I got the palm heart as an appetizer and a schnitzel as main (though in Austria they serve that otherwise :) ). We got a great wine (luckily I did not have to pay), and I enjoyed the place. It certainly is an up market restaurant, thogh that implies that... More

One of my favorite restaurants when I travel to Paramaribo is Spice Quest. Chef Patrick, a good friend and excellent chef has a menu that will satisfy any palate looking for Asian flavors...and the service is so seamless, you need not ask for anything ans everything arrives at your own speed. One of the culinary leaders in Suriname's quest for... More

The food was absolutely amazing. The meals were great. The service could be a little faster but the meal more than makes up for the little delay. Had a steak and could cut it with a fork. Highly recommended.

The welcome is very friendly and the service is also good. The food is above average but not excellent (few places in Paramaribo are). Outside seating looks nice but not enough effort has been put into the furniture. Inside is beter but think average not above. It is worth a visit.
