Spending a night in a good hotel is something to look forward to. Moreover, if that hotel boasts a fine restaurant as well, your stay will be really good. At Residence Inn Nickerie, Lanai Restaurant has no breaks in its opening hours. Seven days a week. Suppose you arrive at three o’çlock in the afternoon and haven’t had lunch yet … the staff will be at your service. Service starts with a sumptuous breakfast buffet at six thirty a.m. Special needs from a guest? “Certainly” is the reaction of the waitress. A little later she turns up with an omelet and pancakes; no extra charge.
After breakfast the doors of the airconditioned dining area are opened. This is to keep the threshold to step in as low as possible. Staff at Lanai is always ready to serve you. Many of the guests prefer to sit on the terrace outside. Takeout is possible too.
A lot of regular visitors don’t even read the menu. They just come in and order their favourite dish. One of the favourites is Hong Kong fried rice mixed with shrimps and chicken fillet. The braised chicken that comes with it is just heavenly! Another favourite dish is fish fillet with rice and a wide selection of sauces. “Would you rather have fries than rice? I’ll put in your order” the waiter says. So, changing a side dish is a possibility. The same goes for all the dishes, by the way. There are also snacks and light meals on the menu. Perfect for people who have a small appetite, or as takeout for the journey to Paramaribo.Should you like to have lunch or dinner with a group of people, Lanai Restaurant offers plenty of space. Coco-Passion and Caipirinha are the most popular cocktails at the bar. Draft bear as well as three brands of beer are reason enough to chill here, inside or out on the terrace. Happy hour and other activities are announced on Facebook. No doubt there will be live entertainment or karaoke at the end of the month.
