We ate at the Boathouse three times. The serving staff was excellent. This would have been a 5 star review if we had only gone there twice. The view is one of the best on the island while enjoying a wonderful meal. That was until our third dinner. The appetizer and red snapper were well prepared. The green beans on... More

I like to give the boathouse five stars because it has been the best dining experience on the island so far. The owner (Anja) came by to chat and the waitresses were very professional and attentive and were a delight. The attention to food, fine wines, and service are the very finest. Thank you for a wonderful night.

This really is a restaurant where you should go if you're on Curacao. It is perhaps a bit of drive but one the better / beautiful places of Curacao. The food and service is fantastic. Price quality quite right so really worthwhile the drive. This restaurant is highly recommended. Is a busy restaurant so booking is handy.

With a group of 6 adults we had a perfect dinner, service was very good and the food was delicious! Friendly waiter and recommended to sit outside on the terrace with a great view.

I don't know why this restaurant hasn't got 1 or more Michelin Stars, because they certainly deserve it !! Been going there every year for the last 5 years, and EVERY time we lick our fingers, hahaha. Food is fingerlicious every time !!! And Most importantly the hosting from the owner Anja and her Staff are incredible. They have the... More

The food is just fine if you are into waiting three hours for your dinner, and being told you are not familiar with European customs because of the wait - even if you have spent half your life in Europe. By the time the food arrived we were so hungry we could have eaten almost anything so I can't provide... More

....and it's still such a great place. We visited at the end of our trip last year so made sure we came earlier on this one so we could go more than once. We were treated on Wednesday to their weekly Indonesian buffet and in the words of my wife (who was raised in Melbourne by Indonesian parents) "OMG it's... More

Did not blow us away or even satisfy us. Considering we came in at about 75 dollars per person for our meal which was two adults and two kids we were hoping for great food. This was average at best. Service was also poor. Unbearably slow....an hour from when we finished our main course to when we got our dessert.... More

This restaurant might have one of the best locations on the island. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dinner was just delicious everything is prepared with a lot of thought which leads to great food! This restaurant is quality!
