Always tasty and reasonably Priced at DE Gadri. The sitting next to the Suriname River and enjoy the good local cuisine at De Gadri is must experience. I recommend all the dishes they offer. Great Staff.

I visited De Gadri on several occasions and was always satisfied with the quality and taste of the food. Great service. View on the Suriname river and the Wijdenbosch bridge. When visiting the Fort Zeelandia area make sure you visit De Gadri.

We like this casual place in a quiet area by the Suriname river and Fort Zeelandia, especially when in dry weather one can sit outside. Service by young black waiters is very friendly and fast. On top they speak good English. Inside there is a...More
