'Tempo Doeloe' is Indonesian (Malay) meaning 'the time of the past' or shorter: 'the old days'. But trust me when I say that in the here and now you can eat very good Indonesian food. Take the rice table (rijsttafel) and enjoy the different snacks in a pleasant atmosphere. Highly recommended if you do not know the kitchen (what is possible if you are an American or Colombian or Venezuelan) and a good vehicle to fight the nostalgia for Indonesian food if you're Dutch.

The looks are great, the staff is friendly, but the food does not have the real Indonesian taste. It looks great and therefore it was disappointing that the tast was less then that.

Went to Temple Doe Loe with my family while on a trip to Curacao, it was a great experience from start to finish. Lets start with the one downside that they didn't have a true kids menu with chicken fingers or something similar as that is what my kids are used to when we go to ethnic restaurants. Now onto the good, the restaurant is in a great location with great views of the ocean as well as Piscadera Bay. They food was full of flavor and we had the rice table, which gave us an excellent sampling of various Indonesian dishes. The waitress was able to answer aloof our questions and was on op of things throughout our visit to the restaurant. Stay rant was tops in service of all the places we went to while on our trip and I would highly recommend. For those couple looking for a romantic night out this place is perfect.

We had a very good meal with excellent service at Tempo Doeloe. The food was well prepared and plentiful. Their hot symbols on the meal were a bit low. We ordered something with 4 chiles and I would at best give it two.
