We went there for dinner. We had a reservation. We were seated outside by the water at a nice table. The service was nice and welcoming from the get go. We interacted with 4 different staff members who were all professional and responsive. The blue bay cocktail was real good and surprisingly not sweet. The amuse Bouche was a gazpacho... More

The location is perfect. We sat outside & could watch boats go by. The food was good. The service was poor. Our wine glasses were never topped up, whole wheat rolls that were promised were never served, others who sat down after us were served their main courses way before us. It's almost like they forgot we were there &... More

While ships go by in and out of the port, they serve you good food. As after all teh fish and meat meals, I was in for a veggie day: the made me a truffle spinach tofu that tasted great. My partner had a very tender veal weiner schnitzel. Excellent wine. Bring your wallet because it is everything but cheap.... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for at least 5-6 years for lunch only and have always enjoyed it. The harbor view is amazing.. This time we were on a cruise with friends and decided to go there for dinner. I made a reservation well in advance for the terrace. When we arrived for dinner, we were greeted with... More

The restaurant is situated at the beginning of an old fort with a very interesting history. The history lesson was a bonus - the restaurant exceeded all expectations. Photos do not do it justice. The outside terrace overlooks Willemstad on your left and the ocean on your right. Breathtaking. And our meal was delicious. I had the escargot in a... More

Do not expect a friendly employee in this place. No smiles, no sympathy, and pretentious and rude service. The view is great, the place is beaultifull and the food is good, but the service screws up with all the experience. We would never go there again.

An employee of Floris recommend this restaurant as "fantastic". We decided to give it a try. View was nice...so we said 'good start'. We even ignored the rudeness of the waiters, and kept thinking is a good restaurant. Let's face it ... for 40-50$ for the main course, I expect some sort of quality. Wrong. Hot appetisers were cold, the... More
