Try it! Food is good & prices are way cheaper than the bland tourist restaurants in the same area. If you don't recognize any of the dishes on the menu don't worry: the waiter will explain the menu to you so you don’t order the wrong thing. Great outdoor seating area. Don’t miss this one if you're in the area - it's a real treat!

We had lunch there. And being familiar with Surinam Food, I was looking forward to this restaurant and was not disappointed. I was assured by the friendly waitress that the cook makes everything himself. Including the Roti's, which is a hell of a job. We had Rotis and Moksi Meti and everything tasted authentic. The food is made with an ingredient that foodies know as "Vitamin "L". Love!!!
Good price and a nice place. Go there.

I picked this place because it looked cute, inexpensive, and my dutch family loves indonesian food. The owner and his wife are so nice. My sister and I are vegan and so we simply ordered the roti dish without meat - delicious vegan meal! Everyone else was impressed with the nasi : ) We had a great night here!

We had a nice Surinam dinner for decent price at De Ruyter Cafe in the center of Willemstad. As long as you don't expect a fancy uptown restaurant we recommend you try it. The menu shows Indonesian food as well. We shall certainly visit a second time before we leave Curacao.

We ate here twice in a week, it's a basic looking restaurant but the food is great! If you like Suriname or Indonesian food they know their stuff here. We've had the roti, nasi, sate and lobo lobo. All cooked and prepared by the friendly owner himself. His wife does the waiting with a smile and gives good advice on what to take.

You can't go wrong!
