Description: Located in the historical district of Petermaai, Kome features a chef driven menu where worldly cooking techniques lay the foundation for the creative freedom Chef David and Pastry Chef Susan live for in the kitchen. The chefs cook things that make them happy, like homemade sausage, tasty sandwhiches, curry’s or stews; fried chicken, fresh bread, pie or something altogether surprising and new.

Affordable, tasty, and cozy. We have eaten here several times, and all of our visits were wonderful.

While in Curaçao for the week, we've dined at several high-end restaurants, but Kome is the best by far! The chef and pastry chef are a husband and wife team, trained at U.S. culinary schools, who create fresh, creative and contemporary appetizers and entrees together with incredible desserts. Particular favorites were the calamari appetizer, curried pumpkin soup, hangar steak with arugula, "flying" redfish, and curried seafood stew, each presented beautifully. Desserts were classically beautiful including layered carrot cake, chocolate mousse cake and blueberry shortcake.

This lovely space includes an open-air prep station and separate viewable pastry area, enhanced by interesting art (e.g., a portrait of Bill Murray, the actor). The atmosphere was pleasantly busy on a Thursday night and easily accommodated a large party of 9 people including children. The service was prompt and responsive and accommodated special requests; not our typical experience at other restaurants on the island.

Best of all, during the middle of a busy evening, the pastry chef met with my young son to discuss her craft and encourage his interest. She is truly a lovely and kind person who created a memorable experience for all of us! Overall, I'd highly recommend Kome!

The atmosphere was great. They servers couldn't have been more attentive. We were there early one night, it was slow and the owners came out of the kitchen and sat down with us for quite a while. The dinner cost was about what you would spend for a nice dinner in the states. Highly recommended, the best that we had on the island.

The food, the people, the service, the drinks, the place....
I could keep going, but suffice to say this is a favorite both for lunch, dinner and drinks. Get's busy though, so worth booking, especially at weekends and for Wednesday tapas nights
