Reviewed 9 February 2014

We went to the jazz cafe during happy hour and asked for a drinks menu which wasn't available. Then we asked what was included in the happy hour and we were confirmed that all drinks were. However after ordering a special beer and a cocktail we were informed that these drinks were not part of the happy hour. The location of the cafe is convenient and the tables outside are nice, however a menu would be great.

“With a name like Miles, I wanted to love it”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

The place looks like a place that jazz lovers love - a bit funky, a tavern like atmosphere, a place where one beer is never going to be enough and the reason we came here - great music. They have a professional type DJ set up, and they are playing real "vinyl" for the true jazz fans, and the music selection is spot on. However, the people lack charm, make no attempt to connect with you unless you are a regular. They have a tradition of shooting empty beer bottles across the bar into a bin, as if this is somehow what - hip, fun? It just doesn't sit with the quietness of true jazz and I could not wait to finish my wine and get out of there. And you know what - they didn't care! They seem to live in their own little world. They have no idea what they could have there if they paid attention to the "service experience" and making people welcome.

“Feeling at home”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Miles Jazz Cafe is the place to stay in the evenings at Curacao. The diversity of people, students, locals and tourist, makes this place a home away from home. Very nice staff, quick and efficient, nice audience and very easy listning music. So don't forget to visit Miles Jazz Cafe whenever you are on the Island. You will be suprised.

“Broodje Bal to die for”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

If I only think about their meatball sandwich, the water walks me into the mouth.
I can also recommend the triple cacique & coke. Also very nice prosecco and icecold Amstel Bright.
If I could afford it, I would go back to Curacao just to visit Miles.

“Great Jazz, great drinks & food, great cafe”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

This wonderful bar, situated in the up and coming neighbourhood of Pietermaai Smal, offers a large variety of drinks (such as soft drinks, cocktails, spirits, wine and local & special imported beers) and delicious fresh home made soup or meatballs. But the best part is of course, Jazz music. And these guys know their Jazz!! Next to a large collection on vinyl and special performances on the computer, they offer live music every Saturday.
Here you will find locals as well as tourists, young and older.
Whether you come to listen to the music, socialise, use the free Wifi, or just to relax and have a drink, the guys and girl from Miles are always courteous and always make you feel welcome. A true and unique gem here in Willemstad! Be sure to check it out!
