Jaanchies offers nice menues for relaxed guests. Sitting next to hundreds of birds being fed with sugar, it's a pleasure to enjoy and watch. Lovely restaurant, great food and super friendly atmosphere!

We had a very warm welcome by the owner and he took his time to explain everything about the menu and the food. We ended up taking a mix of different dishes to taste everything. The food was nice.

The lunch was a bad experience for me personally. LONG story (considering the time I spent waiting for my food) short, I sat at the table for half an hour and checked with the slow-walking waitresses 3 times asking for a menu, and when I...More

Enjoyed lunch at this beautiful local restaurant during a tour of the West End of Curacao. The vegetation on the veranda gives home to many birds and provides nice shade to the restaurant. One can chose from a number of menu’s and even combine them,...More
