Great view, great night

Seated on the waterfront with waves breaking on the rocks was awesome. Drinks were nice. Service was nice and the grilled snapper was excellent. Not fancy but good. Our favorite restaurant in curacao, by far. Shrimp thermidor was very good also.

We were told this was Peruvian Food, Large menu and nothing seemed to unusual. We were pleased with our seat by the water and really enjoyed everything that was served. Make sure to make a reservation and try to sit near the water.

The location of this restaurant in punda is great. It's on the water and the waves hitting the shore make dining there a really great experience. The service was great and the food was really good! Parking is very difficult. There was live music which added to the whole experience!

Our flight home was delayed due problems at the airport. We checked into the hotel and by the looks of the place I decided there was no way we were going to eat there. And so the review begins. We walked around and found this place.We obviously didn't have a reso but got and awesome table right near the water.... More

We found this restaurant by chatting with the owner the last trip we were here in Curacao (January 2015). We decided to try it during this trip. The service staff is somewhat disengaged and not very knowledgeable but we did get the food we ordered. We agreed the food was better than the service. You can really skip the expensive... More

Good food, service is slightly on the slower side, but it's island time! Eat to the sound of the crashing waves. Doesn't get better than this.

Went to this restaurant on a Friday evening with my mother and boyfriend. Live music next to the restaurant and the sound of the waves on the terrace. Surf and turf meal was served with chicken, tenderloin, fish and shrimps. Argentina steak is very big but nice taste! All other restaurants next to Perla del Mar were empty, this was... More

Although it is situated on the same district as Scambi, and has the same romantic environment, the guys who run this restaurant they do not know anything about cooking. The Argentinian Steak I order it was cooked harder than the sole of your show. I just left it on my plate- Well nobody came to ask me if I am... More

We were a group of 10, so we ofcourse had to wait quite a while. But the food was definitely worth the wait. I had shrimps, they were fresh and very tasty. The food is also very filling. And they have friendly staff and a beautiful view on the beach.

You must have dinner here just prior to sunset so you can have the benefit of seeing the waves crash into the rocks before it becomes dark. The seating is out on the deck and if you sit just at the railing it seems as if each crashing wave will splash you...but it does not and just rushes under the... More
