order the pancackes or the ham and cheese tosti

We went there allmost every morning (3 out of the 4 days that we were there) for breakfast, as it was close to our hotel en ten times cheaper than having breakfast in the hotel. They have a huge covered terrace that has ceiling fans as well as tubes that run all over the ceiling to mist water... read more

Food was mediocre, beer cold. The best thing was the view of the bridge opening. They had misters running but it seemed odd since it wasn't that hot out. Waitresses were a little slow but all in all a good place to grab a beer and adult beverage.

you can't beat the view here, you are on the water, they have ceiling fans and misters, it is lovely! We sat down and it took about 15 minutes for someone to come around. We got our drinks which were very good, then asked for our check, about 30 minutes later we get the check and give the lady out... More

Touristy, yes, for sure. But enjoy the location, the breeze and see the boats pass by. Not a bad place to unwind in "the city". Food is what one could expect from such a location: not bad, not superb. Combine it with a few beers and you are guaranteed to unwind.

this became our eating and drinking place of choice during our 5 days in Curacao. Nice views of the harbour, reasonably priced drinks (happy hour 6 - 8). Food was well prepared tasty and good portion sizes. Enjoyed it.

Here you get what you pay for. As we all know places with the best view always lack good food or service. This place didn't have good service or good food but it did have a great view. We sat right on the water and watched boats while we waited for a server to take our order. Everything was SLOW.... More

Enjoyed a nice rest here. The umbrellas were great and needed as we had a big downpour. Had a few beers that were nice and an appetizer that we shared. Our view of the canal was perfect and we loved seeing the bridge open and close.

We had lunch here, because the location and the view on the pedestrian bridge is great. Food is good, but nothing special. We had to wait very long for our change, but finally they brought it. So if you are in a hurry, aks for the bill right after ordering.

Great place at night very lay back overlooking the river and the two sea walls fantastic view. The food was great I tried a local beef dish and they had live music that resonated over the river Nd the lights on a pedestrian bridge connecting otrabanda with pueda give an ambiance absolutely unique I will say this is one of...
