Sitting in the heart of Paramaribo, feeling like you are somewhere far out of the town and having a very special and nice food fusion that is unique for this Country

I would recommend this place, but... More

May be on that particular day they were short staffed, the service was poor. Snacks and the main course were good. Good wine selection for a country like suriname.

Everybody ordered something different and we were not disappointed, on the contrary we all enjoyed our excellent meal. I can really recommend this place if... More

Menu is expensive but worth every penny. The food is great. The terrace is in the open, so you can enjoy the cool breeze.

Gorgeous in presentation and in taste. Spice quest went all out to provide an elegant, gracious meal highlighting local foods and spices. I liked the grilled jumbo shrimp with onions and bell pepper, the stirfried wing beans and the lemon pepper chicken with tamarind sauce the best. The art was as interesting as the food. We had a vertical garden... More

The food is really rather good, and extremely imaginative. The wine list small, and I think a little overpriced. The setting is also interesting, and the historical significance of the location certainly added to the ambience of the meal ... I loved the design, and in particular the way that they have created a feature wall from a simple brick... More
