Just fell upon this bar while looking for a place to get a drink. So glad we came upon it. Service was great and the music outstanding! Everything from James Brown, Janis Joplin, Eagles, etc... A great variety of music. Drinks were great and atmosphere was awesome. Had an awesome time!

Great place to get together with friends. They have fun events and it's right on Pietermaai. You can go for pre-dinner or after drinks. Ask Thijs for his recommendations.

We sat outside on the bench with a nice polar beer. Very comforting, while Thijs (the manager) introduced himself and came by for a small talk. He also gave us nice tips for the island and was running around to give everyone what they needed. We loved it, and would recommend it to everyone.

Not much to say about this place other than it's a blast! It's a small Dutch bar that has fun games to play, great music you can choose, and one awesome staff! I can honestly say that there has not been one time that I've been there that I have not had an absolute blast!

We happened to pass the Cafe de Tijd while walking around Curacao during a stop on a cruise ship. It was a nice, open atmosphere, with outdoor seating minutes from the cruise terminal and downtown shopping. Perfect place to stop in and have a cold beer and talk to the bartender/owner. Music was good, beer was cold, this cafe is... More

Having lived in Amsterdam some years ago, I really miss the environment of a Dutch "brown bar". Cafe de Tijd, which is just a few minutes from the heart of downtown Willemstad at the beginning of the Petermaai neighborhood, brought back great memories. The owner and the other bartender whom we met were not just friendly, but also very helpful... More

We found this bar off the "beaten path" and it was well worth the 5 minute walk it took to get there! From the moment we arrived Thijs (one of the owners) was there to greet us with a smile and a warm welcome. We sat out under the patio and could watch the sunset between the buildings! No better...
