    Most missed restaurant on the island????

    Sadly, over the years some of the good restaurants have either closed or their quality has gone down making them no longer a top choice. What restaurant(s) do you miss and what do you miss about them?


    I miss Chez Matilde! I would get a grilled rock lobster tail served over a truffle oil risotto and the chocolate soufflé. Their doors closed in 2010

    3 Little Birds, an intimate open air roof top restaurant in Oranjestad. VERY romantic.

    There are so many...hard to choose just one. We miss Chez Mathilde, 3 Little Birds, The Flame, Rumba and Boonoonoonoo's.

    Also miss Coco Beach Bar at Rodger's Beach.

    Even though it was not the BEST food on the island, I always like the location and our dinner at don carlos... Friendly staff, and always a relaxing night
