Good food with a nice view

We had here one of the best burgers of the island. Also the lemon juice was really good. And of course it's nice to sit here and watch the opening of the queen Emma bridge

Great view of the waterfront. The service was very good, however the food was not all that. Ordered a burger and a steak but was a bit disappointed.

After shopping we went to Igauna Cafe to get a quick bite before our bus came back for us. The wings were gud. The view was greatttt everyone will love it. The only thing is that it took kindaclong to get the food. That's the only problem

My husband and I spent two weeks in Curacao at the Sunscape Resort. We took the local van into the city of Williamstad 4 or 5 times during our stay, so many great things to see. Unfortunately the Queen Emma pontoon bridge was closed for repairs, but we'll go back someday to walk across it. We had lunch 3 times... More

We stopped here for drinks just before 5 and found the service appallingly slow. Only a few tables were occupied, but the waitress couldn't seem to make it back to us after dropping off menus. After 15 minutes, she wandered back, and then didn't seem that interested in our order. After finishing our drinks, we had to flag the waitress... More

We decided to walk the waterfront and visit shops, being hungry we stopped at the Iguana Cafe (along with many other folks). The food was great, in my opinion. I got a rather large plate just to taste several meats and I wasn't let down. Fish, Shrimp, Chicken and Pork chop (with friend and a lemon tea) = yum! At... More

o Service was terribly slow. Orders were promptly taken, but both the drinks and food took quite awhile to arrive. Two people in our party didn’t receive their fries until finished with their entrées. After telling the waitress we’d like our bill, we waited... and waited... and waited. She never came back. We finally walked up to the bartender and... More

The location of this restaurant can't be beat. It's right on the channel that leads into the main Curaçao harbor. You get a perfect view of the pontoon bridge opening and closing, as ships and boats enter and leave the harbor. But it is definitely a tourist-driven establishment. Service is OK for promptness, but nothing special. Food choices are limited,... More

The outdoor seating right on the water is really cool and give you a beautiful view. However, the food is just ok.
