Don't go there expecting European "haute cuisine", but to sample the real, grandma's cooking, down to earth meals like every Curacaoan fondly remembers their grandmother or "yaya" for. The ambiance is somewhat aimed at tourists, but the talking menu is a remnant of the days past when customers talked to the restaurant owner about what they wanted to eat. We love the fact that you can have everything "half-half" like everywhere where the locals eat (half portion of fries with half portion of rice? No problem!)
One word of caution though; if you want to savour the impression of how it was about 50 years ago to eat out on Curacao, don't go during the high time of lunch or dinner especially in the weekends. The place will be packed and you'll find the service somewhat lacking.
The food is good and reminiscing of how a good, local cook would make food for her family. No European "fine dining" stuff, just wholesome food.
If you're going for a cheap meal, you'll be better off going to the 'Chinese' restaurant a couple of meters further up the road. Jaanchies food is prepared with love and as we all know love is not cheap.
