“Food too bad but good service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I didnt like the food. I had an goatcheese with honey and walnuts dish but it was too sweet ( too much honey ) and too many nuts. The main course was a cod fish with coquilles but it was to much butter. I said it to the waiter but i blamed it on my pregnancy. I thought i didnt like fish or goat cheese anymore. When i was back in my own town i tried the cod fish and goatcheese i liked it again and again. If you go now to the Papagayo restaurant you will see that they have changed the menu and my two dishes have other ingredients. mmmmmm i wasnt the only one that didnt like this.

“Good food but far away from anything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We went here for dinner one night and they had a great menu. The food was very tasty, service was good but it was a little slow...they work on island time! It's well worth the drive for the food but parking is horrible! We had to park several blocks away because there is no dedicated parking for the restaurant. It's all part of the resort and the security guy didn't act like he even wanted to let us in the gates! Just be prepared to walk if you drive and you aren't staying at the resort. It's a romantic restaurant and they speak passable English so no worries there. It's probably a better restaurant for romantic dining than it is for kids so keep that in mind. I would certainly go here again next time I visit Curacao. People were friendly and food was really top notch.

“Great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This restaurant is almost perfect. The location is gorgeous! We ate there twice in their outdoor section. My husband & I had drinks & apps while our son swam in their "endless" pool. The only negatives are the bugs (bring repellant) & the fact that it is a bit pricey. Skip the "designer" drinks & stick to beer or wine. The fruity drinks were tasty, but small & expensive.
