My husband and I ate dinner last night at The Boathouse and we had a very enjoyable dinnerr We would highly recommend this restaurant. We ordered 2 appetizers ,2 dinners ,a bottle of wine ,bottled water and the grand dessert and it came to $150. Nothing compared to NY prices. It was a little difficult to find but there are... More

I'd read some mixed reviews of this place and thought it might be potentially pricey and pretentious. Not so. Food was very well thought out, excellent quality and packed with subtle flavor. We had 3 courses (I just had one glass of wine - my wife doesn't drink) and a couple of bottles of San pelligrino and the bill was... More

For a place often reviewed as one of the best restaurants on the Island this place was a massive let down. We went there for Christmas dinner only to find that the hostess was unbelievably rude and argumentative, choosing to convince us to sit in less desirable table so she could keep tables open for later customers. Despite our reservations... More

This restaurant is a little bit challenging to get to but google maps and garmin both drive you directly to it. It's too hot in the daytime to try to do lunch so the restaurant is only open for dinner. The view from their deck is spectacular, overlooking one of the marinas in Spanish Waters. You are up high so... More

The restaurant is a little hard to find but well worth it. The view over the inner bay in the evening is not spectacular at night but would be fantastic at sunset which is when this is probably at its most popular. This is not fine dining but good solid tasty cooking. My main gripe is that they would not... More

At a romantic spot at Brakkeput, the Boathouse may be the hidden jewel of Curaçao. Truly superb food, diligently spiced, and richly flavored. A very attractive menu for all tastes. Nice, attentive service. Great sunset.

This was our least enjoyable meal in Curacao. The service was very good, and they create a lovely atmosphere with just the right amount of music and tables that generously spaced. That said, the food was mediocre at best. Though this ventures into 'Woody Allen' territory... our fish was overcooked and dry - and 'such small portions'. We ended up... More
