The location is unbeatable. You sit right on the best beach in town. The service is friendly. Drinks amazing. Food good. Honestly... The views are what make this place worth visiting. We stayed at lions dive and there was no reason to leave to eat elsewhere.

We went here for dinner and had the Keshi Yena (local dish of chicken, prunes and cheese) with rice and the Beef stew burgundy-style with white rice. The food and service were ok, but really nothing special.

Tried this place based on an internet search. We certainly weren't disappointed!! Service was superb and the food was excellent! We enjoyed our dinner here so much we returned for a second sampling. Again, we were served as before with generous and tasty dinners! Highly recommend!

Note that if you go to Curacao you can expect food to be more expensive than other islands. We found this place to be pleasant and the food was good. It is close to the Aquarium and a bunch of time shares as well as on the beach.

Pleasant setting right on the beach. Our meals were excellent and service was good. Missed getting one item so the manager came over to check on our service. Remaining item brought out rather promptly.

The buffet breakfast that is served here is very good and is the only reason I did not rate this place "terrible". There is no reason to eat or drink here (except breakfast). One of the bartenders seemingly refuses to serve Americans until all non-Americans have been served, regardless of how long people have been waiting. A Dutch kid, around... More

We had breakfast each day at the Hemingway Beach Bar. It was very nice with the typical American Breakfast buffet. We also had lunch and dinner a couple of times. The food was great and always hot/fresh. Meal sizes were large enough to satisfy big appetites or divide for two smaller ones. We had sandwiches and hamburgers with fries. Both... More
