Sadewa is a small restaurant operated by Remco & Angela. Remco Calbo started the restaurant in 1999 after an extensive reconstruction of one of the oldest Terneuzen buildings.
His aunt Anne Calbo guaranteed some of the finest traditional Indonesian receipes.
Sadewa is a Wayang doll character and goes back into the Indonesian history of the Mahabharata epos where two nephews were in battle to get the thrown of Hastinapoera.
One of the nephews (Pendawa) was helped by his brother, among them was the twin Nakula & Sadewa.
Only one main course: Indisch Buffet € 19,50 (with a great selection!)

2013 Update: Sadly enough after 12 years the business closed.
Favorite Dish: An amazing display of food is present. I tried it all: gulai arab, babi kecap, babi dibulo, sambal goreng beans, opor ayam, sambal goreng telor, sayur keri, pecel, sayur urap, tahu blado, sambal goreng tempeh, acar campur, ikan pepesan, acar lombok, sambal bajak, teri nasi, bawang goreng, serundeng, krupuk udang, emping and white jasmin rice.
I concluded the evening with warm ginger Sekoteng tea with spekkoek.
After the Shantyfestival the organisation had assigned us to this restaurant where we were very warmly welcomed and well seated... al 25 of us (give or take).
Since we were in the mood, soon the accordeon came out and the whole restaurant was singing sea shanties loudly.
The owner and waitress reacted very well to the flood of guests, complicated seatings and the noisy singing. Despite the slight chaos, it did not affect their service in the least.
There are also many seatings outside for when the weather allows it.
All in all we were very satisfied with everything. I would definitely return here to try out more of the dishes.
Favorite Dish: I had never eaten crispy fried eel but it was delicious! Served on a bed of sea vegetables and served with a good tartare sauce, good chips too. My partner had an Iberico pork chop, maybe the finest pork one can buy.
In fact, every dish here was to satisfaction and delicious. The menu shows local produce which is cooked by the young chef with integrity and simplicity.
The 'simplest' dish was a mini casserole of beef stew served with chips for just under 20 euro.
I tried dessert, lovely.
