“Average Downtown Cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Lots of pigeons flying everywhere, very slow service (I guess normal for Curacao), food was just ok, average European cafe food. They had a soccer game blaring. They give you a lot of food for your money and they have a ton of seating. It is in a good spot to people watch right in downtown Willemsted.

“Average location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The food was average and the location hasn't any atmosphere. But The price is ok. The staf could smile à little more.

“Great spot for a meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We recently visited this cafe when on our honeymoon in Curacao. We wanted a light dinner and some apple pie. We had soup, salad, and an appetizer and then ultimately apple pie ala mode. And we were quite pleased. The service was quick and friendly. The food was great for cafe fare and they had a much more diverse beer selection than anywhere else we'd been on the island (although they still didn't have any IPAs or Pales....). We weren't there for breakfast, but I did note that they had quite a few options for breakfast which was nice because we found that breakfast wasn't common on Curacao (except for the hotels...). Great spot overall -- had we not been leaving town the next day, we'd surely have gone back for a few more meals.

“Very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

It was a really pleasent restaurant and the staff was very friendly! I recommend a bucket for the beer as they come in really small bottles around here. The chicken teriyaki was really good.
