Waterkant

Waterkant is inspired by De Waterkant in the heart of Paramaribo, just outside the hustle and bustle with a view on the calming Suriname River. A place to enjoy delicious multicultural snacks, refreshing drinks and heart-warming Surinamese hospitality. Also at this Waterkant you will find yourself in the city centre, just outside the hustle and bustle, with a view on the (okay, a little less) calming Singelgracht.

And because you participate in the concept, Pesca needs less manpower and can offer the fish at a lower price.
