I stopped for lunch , which it was really nice and will be just perfect if I did not needed to wait @45min . if you have time to wait is OK but if you are on a rush skip it.

I cannot say anything about the food. However, the service here is horrible. We sat for almost 15mins without anyone acknowledging that we were there. No menus, no drinks, nothing... In the end we just got up and left...

This is a cute little cafe with outdoor seating and an inside bar. The food was quite good (I had the pesto bread with herb butter, which sounds simple but is more "Dutch" than we get in the US, and the Alexia pasta), and the service was friendly and quick. I spent almost two hours just relaxing by myself with... More

Seldomly experienced such 'no service' place. Filthy terrace, not clean after windy night before. 'Fresh fruit juices' from the can whilst the fruit market is 'around the corner'. Heineken sponsored umbrellas torn apart and not replaced of laziness? Not even offering a small umbrella to get off the terrace to avoid being soaking wet under these torn terrace unbrellas.... It...

Nothing fancy very straightforward, no creativity and almost boring. Breakfast is OVERPRICED! The coffee is great.

The salad and smoothie were delicious. Quick service. Nice and relax atmosphere. The weather was "dushi".

We ate one night in cafe Wilhelmina. We had the platter of the day and you expect that if that is the speciality it will be there in about 20 minutes or faster specially since it was busy and no empty tables. An owner want to maximize his return of investment (that is my opinion). It took 45 minutes after... More

We stopped for breakfast, an outdoor cafe, I had the farmer's omelette which was very good. Others in the group had a ham and cheese breakfast sandwich and were disappointed since it contained no eggs.

After a day strolling around and not in the mood for fine dining, just want to sit, relax, have a drink and something to eat? Then this is one of the places to be! Good, quick service, sit and enjoy watching the people, the showcars that pass by, the tourist bus without windows. Choose your meal, good tasting and value... More

The service is slow and mainly unexperienced. The food is plain and overcooked. The ambiance is alright (situated in the centre of Willemstad), though the tables and chairs are old and simple.
