Nicely decorated new restaurant with really unique service. Specials off the actual menu are really worth ordering, Mama's Gambas was probably the best seafood dish I've ever had. The chef kindly gave me the recipe and even a jar of the Pika sauce that went into it! That's what I'd call good service! The food takes a long while to get to the table, but it's worth it.

We found this place by accident. We were planning on going to another restaurant on a Monday night but it was closed so we drove around looking for another place. We liked the looks of Papa so we gave it a try. We loved it so much we went back a second time.

Their chocolate moose is out of this world. You need to order it as soon as you arrive so they don't sell out of it.

On the second night we were there, we saw a couple come in with a cooler full of lionfish they caught. They sold it to the restaurant and the chef offered it to us even though it was not on the menu. My husband ordered it and it was great.

Their specials on the blackboard run out quickly but everything was delicious.

Papa´s is a very nice little restaurant with great ambience and fantastic food. The place is not very big, but you can choose to sit on 2 different floors or like us - outside on the street. (The staff told us they are also planning a terrace on the 2nd floor overlooking the ocean, which should be great!) The menu is super with a good selection of different dishes, and the service was good too. After receiving our wines, we got a nice amuse-bouche served by the chef. The main dish - grilled lionfish with a sauce with capers - was superfresh and absolutely delicious!! After the meal we shared a Belgian Waffle with fresh fruits as dessert - yummy!! As a plus, the restaurant is within walking distance from some great bars such as Miles Jazzcafé. I will be back for sure!!

We had a Hen night for a friend here last August. We had a great time. Food was good and did not take long. Only thing, restaurant is very very hot, even with windows open. Overall, we had a good experience.

just back from curacao, which was filled with great food and great restaurants. Wine Cellar was very very good, Kome (which we visited three times) was even better (don't miss the brisket or the hanger steak)......But, the surprise and best dining experience on the island was Paps's. A cool vibe, a great look and feel, an exceptionally friendly and fun staff, combinded with albiet a limited menu, offered by far our best fine dining experience on the island.
