Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Bar
$$
“Sometimes you feel like you want to have toast for breakfast, or as the Dutch say it: "A Toasty". For this we go to Zansi where they als serve a good coffee. They have more breakfast options, not a lot, but what they have is good. Only negative might be that they only start serving as of 09.00.”

Caribbean Restaurant

“The Gouverneur offers local and international cuisines for lunch or dinner. The food is excellent and they offer glutenfree and vegetarian options. Try their fresh raw tuna as an appetizer and follow up with the trio fish or the tasty Caribbean salad with chicken. If you love flan be sure to leave room for a Caribbean cream caramel flan. Reservations for dinner should be made. Service is great $$$”
