Restaurant food was good.

I only visited the restaurant and the food was good. Staff was very nice and friendly. It is overpriced though in my opinion.

One of supposedly classic locations. Service is below average. One of my friends had a burger that was awful. We had the half chicken, which was actually good. Centrally located and very accessible.

The most remarkable thing that we found about this restaurant was the view of the harbor front and the Queen Emma Bridge. We had cocktails after a long day of exploring; the night lights were breathtaking and the breeze off the sea was to die for!! I had an appetizer that was average tasting but was on the pricey side... More

It looked like a good view from our vantage below. We walked up the steps and were seated a table overlooking Willemstad. It was fortunate that we could enjoy the view, because that was the only thing our party of 4 enjoyed. The food arrived cool to cold, which we mentioned to our lethargic waitress. She sauntered off, either not... More

My husband is a commercial fisherman in the states so our entire family is pretty picky when it comes to fresh fish. The catch of the day at La Bahia was red snapper. The presentation (whole fish) was awesome. It was spiced and deep fried and oh so good! I couldn't stop eating it and I ordered the steak! The... More

Food was so-so. However, the view of the bridge at night and the shopping village across the bay was awesome! Would recommend it...we just had an unfriendly,waiter.

This restaurant has the best view to Handelskade, but food and service are plain average (maybe a little bellow). I suggest having a drink there at sunset and going somewhere else for dinner.

We walked in without a reservation but were able to get a table for 5 people. Took well over 15 minutes before someone came over to take a drink order. Then quite a while longer to get the drinks. Every step of the process took WAY longer than it should have. Granted, I am an impatient New Yorker but even... More

Horrible service and the food was a complete fraud! We ordered lobster soup - and we got watered down tomato soup with a shrimp in it.... Left there feeling like taking the plane back to wonderful Aruba.
