Tasty seafood

Poor lighting due to high winds but other than that, the seafood platter was scrumptious. Sat just a few feet from the water made the warm breeze feel good while dining

We wend there for dinner, the waves were braking on the rocky coast, amazing romantic atmosphere, live music, and good steak- On the expensive side.

Delicious shrimps and cocktails. And friendly people. The only thing we ordered was a late-night snack and some cocktails. But we enjoyed it with live music and a romantic sea vieuw. Not many people know about this place but you should really visit it.

We had been to Scampi's on a previous trip and enjoyed the food and the service and went twice on this trip. It is a patio on the side of the sea close in the center of Willemstad and serves great seafood. We had a 2 kilo lobster between us which was well prepared and tasty. It is a great... More

It's a long time I visited the restaurant. Up to then however they were serving good food and as you can be seated overlooking the sea it's beautiful.

My wife and I entered Scampi's quite randomly while walking by night on the sea side, and it was probably one of the best restaurants we have entered. Excellent lobster, incredible view on the sea. Highly recommended!

Food was mediocre to say the least! Fried calamari was soooo SALTY and fried in Old oil...aughhh! Grilled shrimp was just ok. Outdoor seating ok with nice view of the ocean and live entertainment. Not worth the money!

Nice location on ocean front. Told us there was no lobster this time of year, but other seafood restaurants had lobster. Mussel appi was good. Tuna was good, but don't order anything with scallops. Grouper okay.

Food is very flattered by the view. Located at the Fort wall in Willemstad on the Punda side. Food was basic and you paid for the view ... Have drinks only.
