Only here for drinks to sit outside and watch the waves crash against the rock wall around the bistro. Minimum $25 charge card and they do not take American Express and could not break a $100 bill. Lovely restaurant decor and menu looks nice however we did not feel overly welcomed on a Wednesday afternoon where there were only 6... More

if you want your hollywood type romantic dinner you always see on films this is the spot. Dine with the sound of the waves and good service. French menu and good wines.

This is a fairly classic restaurant, don't expect earth moving food....just nice food,with a staff that work hard at pleasing you. You can sit outside ,right by the water. You can also go for a late drink. Good cognac,calvados.

Just what the title says: Probably the best views of Otrobanda, especially in the evening. Food was mediocre at best. Service was on par with food. Stay away.

this was the best meal that we had the whole week that we were there. Wish that we had found this gem sooner. Food, service and view were all exceptional.

We had dinner on the patio and loved the atmosphere and the views. Staff was very friendly, but food was only ok. Not terrible, but also not very good.

Very nice: local, atmosphere, ambiance, ETC, ETC... We were there just for drinks, but I'm positive dinner @ sunset or night would be even better! A MUST IF YOU HAVE THE TIME... Pricing was very reasonable.

We came to celebrate my husband's birthday, and we ended up choosing the six course meal with the wine flight. We had a spectacular view where we were seated outside. We needed an explanation of how the six courses worked--we opted for two appetizers, three main courses, and dessert. The food was delicious, and our adventurous 12-year-old enjoyed the food,...

We always think this is the restaurant with the best view over the water and Punda ( Willemstad) So we go there to she the boats leaving the harbour and looking at the pretty houses. But what a disappointment the meal is. For the prices the ask you expect a little bit of quality. I ordered onion soup . When... More
