Romantic, good atmosphere, excellent food and nice service.
Price is a bit high, but quality is high as well.

Great ambiance - open air with a deck that looks out on the river. Very elegantly prepared food. Wine available. Went with a group and were greeted by the chef. We never were given menus, he just asked what we wanted (fish or meat) and that was it. Nothing about how it would be prepared or the price. i have to say the food was very good and attractively presented. Good appetizers - our group shared an assortment and one bottle of wine and ended up paying $170 Surinamese each. Seemed like a lot for Suriname. I wouldn't go back - unless someone else was paying!

A historical site, (though sadly), an amazing spot for its ambience and food.
Dining outdoors is a treat with the bridge in the distance and under an amazing star lit sky.
Service staff were attentive and engaging.

It just doesn't get any better than this place! It really has it all!! Spectacular atmosphere (about as romantic as you could every hope to find), open air, fantastic wine selection, Peruvian guitar player that would set any woman on fire, food presentation and taste was way beyond my expectations. And really, though some in my group thought it was pricey, I did not and it was well worth every penny! It was half the cost of dining at Ruth Chris, and one hundred times better!

I had a couple of people refer me to Baka Foto for dinner. A great recommendation! I got the "surprise" 4 course meal, which was excellent, with wine selection. The portions were small, but that was fine given the number of courses. The wine (which was fine - all South American products - but nothing to rave about) seemed to keep coming (I received 4 glasses - one for each course). The service was fantastic. The location, right on the river in an old renovated fort, outstanding. I highly recommend a meal here is you visit or live in Suriname.
