“Dinner in heaven”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

We heard about this restaurant which is the best #1 in Surinam. We were trying during 4 days to get a reservation, untill we were informed to make reservation 2 days prior. Indeed we got it and it was worth waiting.
This restaurant is really really good; excellent. The service is great, awesome, with good explanation and advice what is best to eat. You can explain how good the food was, try thegreen paya salad. Wow, it taste good. It is a nice place, very romantic.

We noticed though that a couple got a very low table and they were eating their soup, the seating seems not comfortable. It may be cozy to have some drinks but not to eat. We noticed them looking around to check if they can request. We finished early and requested for them to move to our table, but our table was already reserved for the next couple.

I syrongly recommend you visit this restaurant.

“Exclusive restaurant”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

This restaurant is very exclusive. It is some of a drive with the taxi in a neighbourhood with some nice villa's. Tables in the restaurant are very far from each other (so you have a lot of privacy) and it has a very nice garden (it was raining, and therefore there was no place any more for us there). Food was very good, and I can recommend the place. It is expensive according to Suriname standards though! Service is very good.

“Yes, it really is EXCELLENT”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Known by everybody in Paramaribo, Garden of Eden makes some of the best food I've ever tasted, period. And it's not just one or two things on the menu, it's everything.

I've eaten here on two occasions, and both times the owner Alan came to our table and made us feel like we were his special guests. The last time Alan had brought a Masseur who was offering complimentary authentic Thai massages, from the shoulders up. The outstanding food, exotic atmosphere, and personal attention make this restaurant a must visit if you come to Suriname.

“Taste of Heaven”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

What an amazing place. The atmosphere and decor is very unique and beautiful. The staff are courteous and very friendly and make you feel very welcome which is a nice change. They actually seem to enjoy their jobs and are proud of what they do. The service and presentation of drinks and food was also excellent. The food is out of this world, each bite just gets better and better with your taste buds longing for more :). This restaurant is one of the best I have tried here in Paramaribo and I will definitely make it a regular stop.
