Great food at a perfect location. Be sure to book your reservation for a balcony seating in advance, if you want a view on the Handelskade and Pontoonbridge. Although a garden seating is also nice. Food was great, as was the service. Definitely worth a visit!

Tables overlooking the water or a VERY cute, European courtyard - can't go wrong. Good variety in menu, good prices and very delicious. Highly recommend!

We had seen this restaurant all week and finally went on our last night! We showed up for Happy Hour and Arthur the bartender was great! He told us about the island and growing up there and told us which drinks to order! We should have had a reservation but he told us we could sit outside in the bar... More

After touring WIllemsted on a hot summer day, friends and I stopped in for Happy Hour refreshment. Lionel was the bartender and host. He made some very interesting cocktails with fresh ingredients and helped us select an assortment of appetizers. If you are in the area, stop in and enjoy yourself.

Make sure you make a reservation on the balcony, in the evening you will have a great view on the beautiful coloured houses of the Handelskade.

We had dinner here on our first night in Curacao. I will agree with the recent reviews here that service is a bit slow at this restaurant but that didn't bother us as we were not in a hurry. Plus, we had a gorgeous view of the lit up bridge opening and closing for ships to keep us occupied. We... More

I have seen this restaurant scores very high on tripadvisor among the restaurants in Curacao! Personaly I was there but I can not say anything exciting about it; maybe only the waiters who were very nice and service minded! Otherwise the food was good, but not exceptional, the place itself has nothing special, the waiting time for the food was... More

Just popped in without a reservation on a Friday night and it was busy. Unfortunately, the only table free was outside and it was blowing a real gale. Luckily enough, a table inside on the balcony came free and we were able to change to that, it was still windy but a bit better. We were given garlic bread to... More

Had dinner with some colleagues on a quiet Thursday night. I made a reservation on the balcony. The view is amazing, especially if one of the big ships is passing by. It almost makes you forget that the food is good as well. Nice wine selection.
