A busy Sunday evening after the Shanty Festival but service went perfectly. By that I mean: without fault and very friendly. It is suitable for family dinners as well as a romantic dinner.
I was impressed by the amount of staff. I think 7 or 8 front of house, and then at least 3 cooks. It's not a small restaurant but by no means large.
I highly recommend this restaurant.
It's open every day from 11 AM, Sundays from noon.
You can also just enjoy a drink or a coffee. Weather permitting, you can do that, or eat under the trees outside.
Our bill for 1 main course each plus drinks totalled 47.45 euro.
Favorite Dish: We only had a main course but mine was excellent. I had mussels (boiled) with tomato, ginger, and chillies (21.50 euro). Normally served with fries but I requested the freshly baked dark bread. The mussels were certainly very spicy and lovely.
Partner had a piece of filleted plaice with a nice spicy curry sauce with some mussels on the side (18.50 euro). The fries are really homemade and delicious. The sauces (remoulade, cocktail sauce) are home made too and the mayonaise is of the good Belgian variety.
There were fresh flat oysters from Zeeland on the menu (at 10 euro for half a dozen) but I'll keep that for next time.
Willemstad is a very small town indeed. Therefor a wide choice in restaurants is not there, but a heartwarming hospitality is. Right behind the Arsenal, when you enter the gates of Willemstad, the "Weapon of Wilemstad" is inviting you on it's terraces or inside. So either before or after you walked through town and over the fortifications ... have a drink.
