“good Surinam food for a fair price”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We had a nice Surinam dinner for decent price at De Ruyter Cafe in the center of Willemstad. As long as you don't expect a fancy uptown restaurant we recommend you try it. The menu shows Indonesian food as well. We shall certainly visit a second time before we leave Curacao.

“Great Suriname food with a smile”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We ate here twice in a week, it's a basic looking restaurant but the food is great! If you like Suriname or Indonesian food they know their stuff here. We've had the roti, nasi, sate and lobo lobo. All cooked and prepared by the friendly owner himself. His wife does the waiting with a smile and gives good advice on what to take.

You can't go wrong!

“If you feel adventurous - otherwise skip this one”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

If you are adventurous and have about 2 1/2 hours to spend at dinner;if atmosphere doesn't mean much to you....then this is the place for you. The food was fresh, and very interesting. Be sure to ask - if you have peanut allergies....DON'T GO HERE. It's hard find the place...and not cheap.

“Good food but they need to work on their service and presentation”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Food is excellent, but the service is lacking. We were there together with only one other table and the dishes were not coming out at the same time and we had to wait extremely long to get everything, even paying.
