Parisian panache in a Dutch fort town

Mauritz Grand Café, Restaurant en Hotel

The lovely town of Willemstad is named after William of Orange (1533-1584) founder of The Netherlands. The town’s fortifications bear witness to a rich past. In the town centre lies Grand Café, Restaurant, Salon & Hotel Mauritz in a 19th century building which has been meticulously restored and refurbished. Granito floors, tile mosaics and the wooden bar in the Grand Café exude the atmosphere of a Parisian Brasserie, including striking poster in art nouveau style. The strong pillars originate from a Brussels’ metro station.

Views of the charming city park

A few steps up are the restaurant and veranda, offering views over the charming town park and neighbouring Catholic Church. The Grand Café Mauritz is a good spot to read the newspaper with a cappuccino, have a pleasant lunch or enjoy an informal dinner. The extensive menu offers French Brasserie classics and a great selection of seafood dishes. The international style cuisine boasts fresh produce and interesting combinations. The sea food is from nearby well-known fishing village Yerseke. In the restaurant linen table cloths and the grandeur of a stylish conservatory replace the Grand Café’s wood and granito.
