Great Place to Sit

Stopped in here for a few beers during our recent trip. Great wait staff. Wonderful place to watch the action on the water and feel the cool breeze.

What a great spot! Situated on Handelskade right on the ocean overlooking the canal between Otrobando and Punda. We really wanted a little escape from the heat late in the morning and the breeze off the ocean along with the large canopies, fans and misting fans was perfect!! We sat across from the café itself under the white canopies to... More

The food options may be limited here, especially for vegetarians. However the view is priceless. Particularly relaxing on afternoons. Water mist jets provide a cool down on hot days.

Very expensive and very poor food. Cannot recommend at all. It smells of gasoline there. Very disgusting and they forgot what you ordered.

I visited there with my family in August 2015. It was refreshing to sit under the tents and relax in the very beautiful and scenic cafe after hours of hectic shopping. The food was ok and drinks were as expected but again the view - sitting looking at the floating bridge with the outline of beautiful colourful buildings created a... More

Had an early supper after wandering town. Hamburgers were average at best - prices were reasonable given the location and service and was good. Nice views of the harbor and Queen Anne's bridge.

I have no idea what that was that I ate, but it was billed as a hamburger. The food is terrible. The service and drinks were just fine. It's too bad that they couldn't offer better food because the location was fantastic for an early afternoon lunch break. Sitting there, my husband and I took in the picturesque view of... More

We enjoyed our lunch here on the water where we could watch the shifting of the "floating bridge". The food was average; nothing spectacular; but very nice staff, upbeat music and great location.

Nice place to just sit down relax and watch boats cruise by! This cafe is right aside of the swinging bridge in Willemstad. A unique experience.
