We have gone to this little place in the Marina area of Oranjestad on and off over the past 7--8 years. Today we took a low key day in Oranjestad and decided to stop into 7West which has a nice view over the marina area.
What happened was disgusting.
We arrived and within minutes the waitress arrived to take a drink order. Then the time warp started. About 10 minutes later the drinks arrived. As we enjoyed our drinks, a number of other diners walked in. Some from the Coral Princess cruise ship.
The waitress went table to table taking orders and serving them drinks.
We sat and sat and sat. We even saw "cruisers" served food and leave before our order was taken. Finally in total frustration I got up and walked to the bar and requested we be served. About 10 minutes after that we were served a second round of drinks and the order taken. The elapsed time at this point was 1 hour!!!!!!!!! FINALLY after another hour a tuna salad and a crummy hamburger arrived. Well, this was enough to set the better half off. ( and those of you who know her understand she is not a "fly off the handle type" ).
The waitress shrugged and offered a glass of wine on the house.
Total time from arrival until food arrived was over 2 hours. I discussed this with the waitress only to receive the response " I have told the chef off"
If you are retired or retiring and awaiting your pension, I suggest this is a great place to while away those years!!!!
You may wonder why we didn't leave ? We had the time and I was wondering how bad it could get
