Hardly royal

Had lunch here on a visit to Willemstad. The only restaurant open at the waterfront at the time. The setting is basically nice, maybe a bit on the rustic side, but since there was a bit of wind on that day, it was not as pleasant as it seemed at first, with napkins blowing away etc. We had the... read more

I ate most of my meals there at the Plaza Hotel. The food is great, moderately priced. Breakfast was great and nice selection. Lunch you could grab a burger or hot dog, or choose a fresh salad and full meal. Evening meal had lots of selections, the BBQ Ribs were very tasty, I also had their homemade fish soup, Greek...

We ate a late lunch there. There were 6 of us and we wandered into the area at the front of the restaurant just to see what the menu and location was like. The manager or head chef (not sure which) welcomed us in and gave us a run down of the type of food and prices. We had a... More

Great atmosphere. Average service. Not so good food. The only sub-par meal we ate on the island. We did enjoy the atmosphere, the cocktails and the service was at least average. We went with a group of about 8, and no one really had that great of a meal. Not terrible...just not very good.

We chose Scampi's for our anniversary dinner because of the atmosphere and live music, and both were great, but otherwise, the restaurant is just ok. The white wine selection is bad. I requested taste samples of each of the 3 white wine choices and all were bad. They tasted sour. I drink cheap wine at home all the time, but... More

It really did remind me of an olive garden. Very little local food. Popular with the Cruise ship folks I suppose. They tried hard to upsell. Their catch of the day was lobster at 95 guilders plus ($50 -100 US depending on the size.) They insisted the 'water was not clean' unlike every other place on the island (they all... More

THE only reason why this restaurant is still in business is because of their agressive sales and the fact IT is the fileer restaurant in à row of otter places at the waterfortboogjes. The food is a real disaster. Sauces all in plastic prepared days (weeks?) before. Calimares fried way too long. A steak (ordered rare) was more leather then... More

We were unfortunate enough to dine at what at first looked to be a very pleasant restaurant. Lovely location, right by the water and, yes, you may even have got wet from the breaking waves, all adding to this unique atmosphere. However, the service was awful and food not anything to write home about. We had a waitress whose face... More

We visit Curacao every summer. Every time we visit, the first restaurant we have dinner at is Scampi's Restaurant. For great food, great ambience and wonderful service. Reading one of the earlier posts about credit card scam, we really do not believe that that was ever possible. First, the person says they were scammed elsewhere on the Island. Then, they... More

I went to this restaurant in OCT 2008, and had credit card fraud detected elswhere on the island. I got a new card this year and somehow this restaurant made a falicious charge on my new card even though I haven't been on the island for a year! So, customer beware! The food is good and cheap, and the view... More
