Excellent service

The waitress was excellent, the setting was nice, but the food was average. I would go there again, however, because there is not that much competition in Kralendijk.

The food is very good and the location is right on the sea shore. It had a nice variety of food and perfect for sunset eating. The wait staff was very friendly.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and chose to dine at It Rains Fishes. We stopped by earlier in the day to make a reservation. When the hostess was made aware that we were celebrating a special occasion, she said that they would be happy to help us celebrate. We arrived to take a reserved table with a waterfront view....

I would not recommend this restaurant based on price and the food being very average. Had the Mahi Mahi, it was overcook and the creole sauce that came with the fish was bland. My wife had the shrimp dish and it was nothing special.

Not far from most hotels, just an easy walk to build your appetite. The prices are about average for the Island. Not out favorite but good.

Another class place with a beautiful view. I enjoyed a red snapper and my wife had the tuna with a sesame seed crust. Both were outstanding. Enjoy their drink of the day which is always changing. Very relaxed place with a great wait staff.
