The food is so so. The food selection is also limited. To say the least, the expectation was not met. A reputable history lost its love.

The Rijsttafel has to be ordered by a minimum of 2 persons and is 42.50 Ang per person. The meal begins with a complementary plate of ‘kroepoek’ (prawn crackers) and sauces, along with a bowl of warm peanuts, followed shortly thereafter by a small spring roll (loempia) with a tasty sauce. The Rijsttafel consists of 7 hot and 7 cold dishes (see the attached picture for a list of the dishes). The owner came by our table to explain each of the dishes and is quite agreeable to having his picture taken with your dinner companion. He obviously takes much pride in the food he serves. While I have had better Rijsttafel (in Amsterdam and Hong Kong), the whole Rijsttafel experience makes for a wonderful evening. As of March 2015, this is the only restaurant that offers Rijsttafel in Curacao or Bonaire.

This place is for locals. It's well off the beaten path for the tourists, but that makes it a nice change. The owner is friendly and ones around to explain each of the 14 dishes. They are all very tasty.

We had the Rijsttafel (Rice table) which is a medley of dishes from all over the Indonesian islands, and a perfect introduction to the "indisch" cuisine. But make no mistake: rijsttafel, despite its Indonesian roots, is not authentically Indonesian but a relic from the period of Dutch colonization over what is now Indonesia (1602-1942).
Anyway vegetarians, if you order one day ahead Curanesia will make a perfect vegetarian rijsttafel. We enjoyed, it was well priced, nice atmosphere and friendly personnel. Don't miss out the spekkoek (spice cake) for dessert. Curanesia is very recommendable.
