Nice restaurant at the quay side of Kralendijk. The fish is really good and all worth a try. Still one of the better ones on the island. Unfortunately the wine is too expensive compared to others. Friendly staff!

Locals and tourists both told us of this one,great food and service. It was one of the best to us! I had a tuna fillet with homemade fries, my husband had lamb chops with mashed potatoes. The drinks were awesome too

Good quality, steep prices. Spacious terrace and cheerful staff. Portions are medium size but of good quality. Located right at the avenua along the coast.

Our group of 6 had dinner here on a very windy night. It just made it more fun to feel the brink winds flow through the open air restaurant. Good and service was great. Beautiful place on the waterfront.

Wonderful staff who were happy to serve. Great food - nice selection. Lovely view of the ocean, a little towards the end of the main road, so it's a bit more sheltered from traffic noise vs. other patios. Overall - our family would highly recommend it.

Dinner was very good. Try the appetizer with several seafoods. We had made a reservation by email, but they couldn't find it. No matter--we were seated. Lots of people there. Clearly, very popular. Good variety on the menu. The fish was slightly over cooked. Excellent wait staff. Nice open air seating with a view of the ocean. Enjoy!

Nice open fronted restaurant overlooking the sea & close to town. Fish dishes were excellent, non-fish dishes less outstanding but still good. Friendly, laid back local service, great wine choice & knock your socks off strawberry mojitos.

It was a one-time evening with Indonesian food. They flew a chef in from Curacao for this. I sure hope they do this more often. What a magnificent food! It was delicious and more than any of us could eat. The service was delightful too.
