These people tried to charge me almost double. The bill was for 18 Netherlands Antilles guilders or 10 USD. Paid $20, got $2 back. And I'm pretty sure the lady who gave me the change knew exactly what she was doing since the check indicated the currencies clearly and the money looks pretty different. At least the view was nice.

The food was good simple and tasty. The service was not great but if your going to sit at the great spot as long as you get you drinks quickly(as we did) who cares. Sit, eat, drink and watch the bridge swing open as the boats go in and out of the river.

Being in downtown Willemstad we figured that food prices would reflect the "tourist trap" style pricing but we were pleasantly surprised when both the food and the prices were remarkably delicious ;). You have a great view from the restaurant and you are in the midst of all the shopping. Well worth a trip to this restaurant.

Food was simple....but the drinks were awesome! You can get breakfast to dinner there. A good rest stop. Relaxing. Very entertaining views, especially when the Queen Emma Bridge is opened & ships pass through.

So looking for a nice locaton for dinner,I choose this spot for the location. Excellent location,but service was beyond slow.When I actually have to get up from the table to find the waitress to order,plus BRING the food,that's bad. I ordered the Columbian style steak,avoid it unless you enjoy eating something that reminded me of a Goodyear tire,only more fatty.... More

So every time we walked by here it was packed. Pretty much figured it to be the tourist stop. So after a loud fun NYE we were looking for breakfast. This place had that. While not a huge breakfast menu and we later found out the whole menu was available. I had the pancakes they are thick and good. My... More
