Cabs are a must to and from this restaurant, particularly if you're like us and visitng by cruise ship. And cabs are a little pricey.
That being said, the restaurant was well worth the trip. Service is absolutely first rate, and the food is even better. The place has a certain European charm, which may have been acentuated by our sense that we were the only Americans in the place. We had been encouraged to reserve a table at one of the restaurants closer to the immediate downtown, but I'm glad we travelled out 15 or so blocks to Rozendaels. This restaurant is not to be missed, but make a reservation.

Very nice place to eat close to Avila hotel. Quality of the food is very good and they serve a more than decent wine. When staying in Avila go at least one night to eat here

We decided to try this restaurant based on prior reviews and it did not disappoint.

The food was some of the best we have had anywhere. The steak bouillabaisse is a must have but everything else is just as good. The ambiance is great, make sure to sit outside. They have set the tables in such a way that each table is a surrounded by plants giving it a private table feel.

The prices were reasonable with 4 entrees, bottle of wine and misc other drinks totaling $135 w/tip.

We parked on the Otrabanda side and walked to the restaurant. It was about a 15 min walk past town through an area (Pietermaai) that was mainly under construction (stay on De Ruyterkade for a better walk).

On our honeymoon we gave this place a try on our second night. Let's just say we went back to this place on the 6th night! Great food, price, atmosphere and service! My husband is obsessed with the funchi!

We went twice during our stay in Curacao (very short walk from Avila Hotel). Great service, great wine, local cuisine.
