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.

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...

Nice and friendly staff. 1 point - when you have to pay your bill it can happen that you have to wait a long time before you get you change money back. Up... More

Let's face it the real attraction here is the location. What a fantastic view.. But the food is good, the prices reasonable and the service was very good.

We stopped at the Iguana Café for a drink during a shopping trip into Willemstad. The café does a nice job to try and provide shade along with cooling mist machines. Honestly the mist was barely wet and not at all cool, but it didn't matter to us. The drinks were decently priced, the service was fine and the view... More

We ate at the Iguana 2x. First time we had lunch while shopping. The next time we went back for the Lionfish. Is was good. The best part of this place is the view and watching the ships come in. This place is really pretty!

I really enjoyed my meal which was chicken skewers with peanut dipping sauce, however my wife go stewed beef and it wasn't nearly as appetizing. She loved the bitterballin appetizers, however i found the texture and taste to be a little lack luster but they are a staple in curacao so to each their own. I recommend trying them because... More

We drove from the other end of the island to get here. When we came upon the pontoon bridge,it looked like a nice place to have a drink. There was canopy with fans and water misters,very inviting. My wife had lion fish and I had mahi-mahi. Both were wonderful. A great place to lunch with boats moving and the bridge... More

Great view, great and fast service. The prices are very reasonable. It's our favorite spot to lunch and dinner. The view from the waterfront is awesome. The famous pontoon bridge is very nice lighted up at night.

The food here may be moderate but it is the very best place to sit with a drink and watch everything that happens on the main Willemstad waterway. The prettily lit Emma pedestrian bridge is towed across the waterway and then back to its resting position across the far water's edge up to 30 times a day. Ships and boats... More
