We dined at Papiamento restaurant for the first time last week. The restaurant is visually outstanding, very nice atmosphere and we dined right next to the pool which was kind of neat.
My wife enjoyed her dinner immensely, however I was not a huge fan of the "on the stone". They bring your food to you on an extremely hot stone still cooking which is a neat idea, however there is no room on the rest of the "plate" to do anything. They only give you a small bread plate to move the food onto. The food was so hot temperature wise I couldn't hardly enjoy it at all. Very disappointing.
I love hot sauce, in fact I'm known as Iron Man at a local restaurant because I've been the only one to finish the spicy dish they serve. The "Mermaid" which I ordered came with a spicy papaya sauce that was pretty hot, but on top of the temperature of the food I was soaking wet 5 minutes after starting the meal.
No clue why they don't use larger plates, my shrimp was actually burnt by the time I finished eating.
I'll go again only because my wife will make me, but I'll eat ahead of time and just get a salad.
