The food at Mr Congas is definitely spot on Cuban food. It was exactly what I was looking for. Very delicious! My only complaint is the slow service.

Looking forward to a good cuban meal outside. Arrived before 8:00 on a Wednesday night. Waited over 10 minutes for a menu, and 20 minutes to order. Ordered a cubano and my husband ordered a cuban pork sandwich. They were out of pork and bread. Wait staff was also terrible. Don't waste your time.

Thanks to the absolutely fabulous trumpet playing of the owner, Mr Igort Rivas, we discovered this great restaurant only two days before we had to go home to Norway, but he and his staff made this a perfect ending to a three weeks vacation to the ABC islands. Mr. Rivas must be one of the best trumpet players in the world, and on top of that; the food, the drinks and the ambience inside and outside is as great as it can be! The visit to Mr Congas lifted our stay in Curacao several nothces.

Mr. Congas is the best and most authentic food we found in Curacao. My boyfriend and I were in Curacao for 1 week, and went to Mr. Congas three times! While there is no "water front" view, we found this was better than the true water front places as there was a nice breeze, live music, and no hot or humid air.

The ceviche and seafood soup were the best I have ever had.

The service, food, and atmosphere were truly amazing and I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

We happened upon this gem purely by accident! We read the menu and made reservations for dinner the next night. Unfortunately, there was no live band playing, but ,there was great music from speakers. Despite the extremely slow service..(waited 45 min. for our appetizer) we still had an enjoyable evening..The setting is very pretty and the food was great!. We had the Tostones for an appetizer and for dinner,we both ordered Ropa Vieja, fried plaintain, rice and beans!! Leave room for dessert...delicious Flan!!!
