We made last minute reservations and they were able to squeeze us in. My wife had a typical island cocktail. I tried to order Seagrams or Canadian Club - no luck. I had the onion soup which was large but not oniony enough for my taste. My wife had the garlic shrimp and I had lamb chops in garlic sauce... More

One waiter was very impolite and the other forgot one of our orders.. Then the manager (or other waiter I don't know for sure) apologized. But I think they should be trained to serve better!!! Treat the clients nicely !!

The setting and location is just WOW and although the food was not entirely world class (now that is hard to come by in Curacao) the friendly and unusually efficient staff made up for it. After all the [disapointing] restaurants we visited during our three week stay on the island, this earned our best vote. You will find that the... More

Not easy to find on the fourth floor of the Rif fort complex. The staff is very friendly, professional and eager to please. The food is delicious and promptly served. My wife started with a lovely shrimp cocktail followed by a delicious shrimp Thermidor, served with crispy kasava fries. I started with onion soup which brought back memories of Paris.... More

First off I could barley breath in this open air restaurant. The smoke and grease billowing out from the kitchen goes right thru restaurant and directly at all the patrons. We left feeling greasier then we did all day on the beach. I'm sure I now know how the cooks feel after their shift and that's something almost makes me... More

We enjoyed sitting outside a patio within an old fort, the development itself is cool and even though it is touristy, I was surprised with the amount of locals eating there. The prices we fair and the portions were larger, but the food arrived lukewarm. This was not a memorable or special dinner. The service was slower and really slow... More

They have a great item that they bring to your table. Kind of like a fried cheesy ball with dipping sauces---EXCELLENT!

I love the view of this restaurant, the location is great and the quality of the steaks is superb, service is good too and the kitchen is open so I looked at it and seems clean. I am a recurrent customer and enjoyed every time I have been there.

Just wow! The location, the breeze, listing to the ocean at night and the food. Perfect combination. Everything I had was amazing.

The food is not special, just nice but nothing else. Wooden chairs without cussions, the view is nice when there is still daylight, during the eveing and night you do not see the ocean but a black hole. I found it just too expensive. Been there. Done that. Never go there again
