The restaurant is located in the Fort Nassau overlooking on one side refinery and industrial landscape of an ugly side of Curacao, and on the other side Willemstad. If you decide to go there book the table with the view of the town not refineries! We had lots of grilled meat and all was good. Staff was OK. However, we... More

Jenanna28062012, thank you for taking the time to review the restaurant. Happy to read you liked the food. Not sure however to which other restaurants you compare our prices. We can honestly say that our prices are very average if you compare us with similar restaurants in Curacao. More

Now have your expectations in check.Curacao is an island which requires using some imported, frozen, or less than ripe ingredients. Steak is going to be tough and there will be a lot of fried food. In addition, you'll have some island grit. Most of the food in Curacao is not good. That said, the food here was as good as... More

Dear AmerinMilan, thank you for your wonderful review! It is so refreshing to read that someone likes the view on the side of the Refinery as indeed it is often a lively and bustling view with at night a million little lights. Thank you also for the great compliments on our food and pricing! We appreciate it very much. More

Went to this restaurant as we wanted great food and heard the view was spectacular - we were not disappointed! My friend had the 3 course meal and said it was amazing. I ordered the escargot appetizer and it was amazing, followed by the seafood trio which was amazing, and then had tiramisu for dessert which was to die for.... More

As the previous contributor already mentioned, I am sure that at one point this was a good restaurant. The good ratings on this site is why my husband and I chose to spend the second day of Christmas dinner there. Unfortunately, I think this place is on its way down. Wen we arrived, there was an old guy outside meticulously... More

When I was in Fort Nassau a couple of months ago, It was WOW. But the more tourists come, the more the prices goes up, and the quality and service goes down. This is exactly what is happening with Fort Nassau. It's becoming a tourist trap. The waiters and waitresses were very rude and unfriendly. They are untrained, and good... More

Dear Donaxi, it was very surprising and disappointing for us to read your review. We actually checked your previous review from June and you wrote just the exact opposite, for which we were of course very happy! "You loved the food, the perfect (and fast) service and atmosphere". Now just a few months later we are a tourist trap and... More

In fort Nassau you have a view all over Willemstad which is lovely. The room is air-conditioned so the heat won't bother you. The food they serve tops it of it is really worth the visit for a special occasion

I liked the view over Willemstad from the restaurant. The food was average but okay. But the staff was not pleasant. Only 4 tables were booked and still we had to wait long times for service. Staff looked like they did not care about the customers.

Great setting in a fort on a very high hill with a view overlooking the floating bridge. The overall experience is like none other, you drive up to this towering fort and then sit in open air with a great view. Wife had Cod and it was amazing, but the steak was a little tough (good flavor but very fatty).
