The customer service is toooooo slow! You are lucky if the order does not get lost by one of the waiters.... Having been living in Holland for a while, I can say that dutch people in this side of the world, became too easy going...

This restaurant is depending at what day your are there, it is sometimes very busy but you will always find a good seat. On Monday at Dinner time it was quite and empty. On Punda Thursday Vibes with... More

This place was always busy every time we walked by for a whole week. Notwithstanding that, the service was friendly and fast. Food was basically OK if a little bland (the pasta needed slat & pepper). Average prices.

I was very happy to find this place on a day when it was public holiday and not many people were around. I was super excited to see Shoarma on the menu so knew straight away I had to order it! The menu was exactly like it would be in The Netherlands and this made me very happy as I... More

We only stopped here for a drink as we wanted something with curacao in it. They offer a number of blue drinks that both look nice and are tasty.

This place is attractive for its big terrace and casual 'hang out". It offers a good selection of food and drinks at affordable pricing. Service could improve, but the Dutch seem always to bring that friendly and open style service and communication and willing to go the extra mile all the time.

Stopped in for lunch while working downtown. food was really good; I liked my salmon baguette and my wife liked her cheese baguette. However, I ordered the salmon omelette. Server never apologized for the mistake and wasn't overly friendly. So that's why I gave it a average rating. Average prices for the island.

Great location, in the city center, Punda. Stop there for lunch or dinner before or after shopping. Sit and watch people pass by. We had a friendly waitress. Ordered 'Uitsmijter ham/kaas' which is an open egg sandwich with ham and melted cheese, the tagliatelle with Salmon and spinach, and a Dutch 'Kroket', which is a deep fried ragout roll in... More

We called in for drinks and a bite of lunch after a morning on the beach. There were less than half the tables occupied and plenty of staff. Despite this the service was slower than a snail. It took 15 minutes from our arrival for the first beers to arrive. The food was good, so no complaints there, but on... More
