Had drinks at sunset. Beautiful to overlook the marina and see the sunset behind the hills. Decided to stay after sunset to eat since it was so peaceful. Service was attentive. Ordered the tuna rare and it wasn't--seems no matter where we ordered tuna it was always overcooked. :) It must be an... read more

I had dinner here with my boyfriend at the most beautiful table with a great view (sunset is the best). Service was great, they were really willing to help and give recommendations. We had a lovely evening with great food and great wine. They really made our evening (and even our holiday). Sad it was our last evening, but when... More

A little off the beaten path, but definitely worth your while! This is a great restaurant with great food and great service. The beautiful view was just the cherry on the cake. This is a great place for a family dinner or for a romantic time out with your loved one. I have done both and Boathouse delivers!

Great service and excellent food. Nice view of the Spanish bay and watersport activities. The Drinks were great, we enjoyed the location, great for couples and also for business meetings. I can highly recommend this to anyone vacationing in Curacao to spend at least one evening at this place.

Have been here a few times and feel while it's fairly expensive for Curacao it's well worth the expense for good food and as for service it's great for the island where service can be very slow. Would definitely recommend to someone who wants an enjoyable meal.

This restaurant is set right on the water and has a casual elegance about it. The food is excellent and staff members are friendly, professional and welcoming. We have eaten here several times and were always pleased. Great fresh fish, chicken and meat dishes and also several delicious vegetarian options. There is something here for everyone's taste and they are... More

This is a fantastic restaurant which provides beautiful views of the ocean and hills of Curacao. In addition the service is superb and the food is well prepared. If you enjoy Salmon, it was well prepared. The roasted potatoes were also a nice touch. I addition they cater to children providing fantastic culinary appropriate meals. If visiting Curacao, put this... More

We decided to try the Bali nigh which unfortunately was a very far cry from Bali. A minimum or not at all on vegetables, tofu, the gado gado had to our opinion cut potatoes instead of Tofu and tauge/stringbeans, eggs were falling apart, tauge was not fresh looking etc, so therefore for vegetarians not worth going to. Luckily there are... More
