A great restaurant at a great location with magnificent view

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.

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!

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

The best thing about this place is the view of Spanish water, the food is ok and unfortunately overpriced for what it is. The waitress who served us at first was more intent in catching up socially with the young couple seated at the next table than serving customers. Thank goodness for the rest of her staff who have to... More

My husband and myself and our travel companions recently had dinner at the boathouse and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We had the tenderloin, duck breast and rib eye steak. Everything was prepared to perfection, and the accompanying side dishes were a perfect compliment to the meats. We all cleaned our plates it was so good! We then had the... More

Sure there is a cut in half boat on the premisses, but that is about everything there is in relation to the restaurant's name. Food is ok, but nothing fancy or special. Price of a steak is usd 30 and other plates are also usd 25-30. There are better options on the island.
