An oddity...

Reluctantly headed into Bahia after finding other restaurants were fully booked. Garish neon lights and questionable music were not promising. A band was playing; unintentionally funny as it turned out. Food disappointing; my prawn dish was swamped in coconut milk and sweet to the extent it tasted... read more

We were drawn to the restaurant because of its location, the view was nice. The foord on the other hand was bad and service was very poor. People smoke all over the restaurant. It was very unpleasant.

In fact it may have been condensed milk. Very little... More

Dinner was very good, however the location and ambiance made it worth the walk over. About 15 easy walk from the Renaissance Hotel. The restaurant overlooks the Pontoon Bridge, or floating bridge I would say.

Normally I look to TA before selecting a restaurant but on this night we just wanted to find something quick and with a nice view. It definitely has a nice view and the live entertainment is nice but the food wasn't great and for the price felt even worse. It's too bad because the location is ideal. Perhaps hit this... More

Very plain dining area..it is open air and seating is not on top of others. Food this night was mediocre...salmon was fair. 3D Fish dinner was rubber or wax, could not make a choice. Had to ask to move to a table where kids were not screaming or knocking their chairs against our chairs. The waiter cheerfully moved us. On... More

This restaurant is on the water with a breathtaking view of downtown Curacao. As you dine you can watch the shops go by and see the passenger bridge move each time a ship approaches. Going at night is even better because you can see the night skyline which is breathtaking! A must see in the island of Curacao!!!

Good food, but very few people in the place, because I personally believe that we need a little more entertainment

I've went there maybe 5 times for dinner and was always satisfied. They serve a pretty standard international cuisine (meat or sea food) but it is always prepared well. And if some ingredient does not meat their quality standards, they will refuse to serve it to you (seriously, thanks for that!). The staff is very attentive and kind. But what... More

Stopped for lunch. It was the first stop for food when we arrived. A little sticker shocked at first. So we were afraid and ordered the ham and cheese sandwich. We weren't expecting much....but, it was really good and came with fries. About the cheapest item on the lunch menu and just about everything else doubled in price after that... More
