The bad first- there was a monthly special of shrimp pasta that had great flavors but the shrimp were so rubbery they would have required a steak knife

Now the good (which far outways the bad)- the inside is very quaint and open. There is outdoor seating at picnic tables in a garden area. The service was very good,though the typical slightly slow of Curacao. It is a nice setting to linger and we are here to escape the fast paced world that we live in. The mushroom on toast appetizer was very good, the pumpkin soup was amazing. The beef stoba melted in your mouth, no knife needed for it. The sweet and sour pork was excellent. If you have any room left try the cooked bananas and ice cream. We will go back during this trip but we will avoid the shrimp

My husband and I spend our winters in Cas Abou, and have gone to this restaurant weekly for years. Brian and his wife are great; and they even allow you to bring your dog! Make sure to get the fried banana with ice cream for dessert; we also like the stoba, which is a Dutch dish of stewed beef. It's not like our stew with cubes of beef combined with potatoes and carrots; it's a large piece of beef that has been stewed. Very good.

This is a great little restaurant in the Cas Abou area that has good food and is reasonably priced. Actually, the prices are very good. The owner, Bryan is very nice as are the servers including lovely Angie.
One can dine inside in a truly European-feel décor or at the outside picnic tables. The food is fresh daily and they recommend one make a reservation.
We showed up one evening without a reservation and they did not have the food to serve us anything. But they did offer us pizza and it was great!
No ocean view, but is has a nice breeze and is very comfortable.

We loved this place so much that we went two nights in a row! Sitting outside under a little covering, you can enjoy the beautiful evening weather while dining on beef tenderloin, grilled shrimp, or babi panggang. The service was wonderful and friendly. A must-eat!

We ate salad and pizza and enjoyed a wonderful outdoor atmosphere this week at E Lanternu! Brian was a great host and made sure we were well taken care of and had everything we needed! I can recommend this place to anyone on the island or travelling to Curacao. It's easily accessible to anyone staying on the west side of the island and worth a short drive if you're closer into town. High value for the food and service you get.
