We made the mistake of stopping by Zanzibar on our last night in Curaçao. We were told by the manager about 15/20 min wait. After nearly 30 min... I asked him how much longer & mentioned there were at least 5 or 6 empty tables. He said "no reservation? You have to wait.. I'll get to you when I get... More

We had a very nice meal for dinner so we returned and tried for lunch, but were told "no pizza" served for lunch! Then we waited for a menu and drinks from the one waitress who seemed to ignore us, so we left after 20 minutes.

We went to Jan Thiel beach to do some flyboarding. This is a nice place to eat after flyboarding or hanging on the beach. We had a light lunch. My carpaccio bagette was really good. Convenient place and nice atmosphere!

We attempted this place twice because of the lovely beach bar vibe and location. The first time we just got drinks and snacks. The restaurant was not busy as it was before happy hour and after lunch rush. The waitress took forever to get us a menu, then forever to get our drinks, then forever to take a food order,... More

Came for lunch and the food was hit or miss. The fresh fish was fine but the burgers were not good. Rotating servers so they never seemed to know what was going on at our table. Lots of biting flies too.

We actually came here for drinks - their service left a lot to be desired. The music catered to the young and that was their clientele. That was ok - had a large crowd of people so they probably don't care!

It's a nice place, but the food is only ok! A little overpriced for what they' ve got to offer! Have a capuccino or a smoothie and enjoy the view!

Food was ok, but the service is a real shame. Had to wait endlessly. In the end even the bill contained an error.
