The food, especially seafood, is excellent. Service is friendly. If you find yourself a table at the rim of the restaurant, you can have a really great view at the Pontoon bridge and the Harbour aria. The prices are what you might expect from a restaurant of that caliber. Highly Recommended!

We went to La Bahia because the floating bridge was open and we were famished from a day of kayaking. We were looking for lobster and it was thankfully on the menu. When we were led upstairs. We were greeted by Nino who seated us at the table right be the water so were able to see the floating bridge... More

- was able to sit at a table next to the water so was able to see the bridge move along the water which was awesome - waiter appeared annoyed with us and was not very friendly, even smiled at him when ordering and was met with a "dead behind the eyes" look - started to rain and another waiter...

First and foremost, just as the other reviews, the views from La Bahia are beautiful. Now the food on the other hand was down right mediocre. We chose this place bc it just seemed like it was going to be a great experience. That it was not. I ordered fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. I did not get alfredo sauce. I... More

We randomly found this place in the evening when the pontoon bridge was open, so went up for drinks. FABULOUS views overlooking the water and the beautifully lit pontoon bridge!!! They had live music and we danced a bit at sunset. Great way to start an evening on the town!

The food was good, almost great. We had steaks that were juicy, tender and flavorful. The staff was friendly and helpful with the menu. The star here is the view of the water way and Queen Emma Bridge. The seating area is covered but the view are not blocked and make for a very nice relaxing dinner.

The restaurant is above a kind of icky casino...But, the restaurant is good and the view is AMAZING! It is a great spot to have dinner or a drink and watch the bridge. Service is great. Garlic shrimp was delicious!!

I stop by this restaurant to have dinner at least once on every trip to curaçao. It has improved quite a bit since my last trip 3 or 4 years ago. I am big on seafood and they shine here. The appetizers, particularly the calamari, were perfect. I had the lobster for the main course and it was sublime!

Our server at the restaurant was amazing. He corrected us when we accidentally mistook the price in florins for usd. You won't get anything fancy but the views are nice and good for an easy meal.
