“Great food and service”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We went here in connection with the "restaurant week" of June 2014. The food consisting of 15 small dishes was delicious! The dessert was awesome! They also gave us great service! We had also a great location on the outside terrace. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends!

“Not as expected”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Located just around the corner of our apartment, we had to try this restaurant, as it looked good from outside.
The lace was nice and clean, and staff very friendly, but eventually he food was not close to what we had expected.
This may be a personal thing, as the restaurant was very crowded, so you have to try for yourself... for us it was a nice experience, but not good enough to repeat.

“Little Indonesian treasure”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We saw the sign on our way to Piscadera bay and decided to go for diner. On a top of a small hill, with amazing views over Piscadera. We got a table on the outside veranda and decided to go for the Rice table (15 small dishes). We loved it, start of with a Soto ayam soup, followed by 15 small dishes of Indonesian delights. (chicken in cocos, Pork and chicken sate, spicy beef, spicy shrimps, 3 kinds of kroepoek, white rice) too much to mention. The service was very nice and the owner came by to ask if al was okay and if it was our first time here. Absolute treasure on this side of Willemstad.

“Exciting food experience”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We don't have rice tables in the US, so this is a really exciting dining experience. Way more food than you could ever eat with so many exciting flavors. The view and space is beautiful, go at sunset.

“Still a bad experience”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The food they serve is not really Indonesian. The meat dishes all have the same taste as the Dutch influence on the recipes is to big. For Indonesian food there are better places on the Island.
