Nothing to brag about, yet quite costly.. I had fried shrimp, fries and a water bottle and the cost was $38 USD.

It is a nice place to have a drink at the end of the day and enjoy the opening od Queen Emma bridge!

The best thing about this restaurant is the location. You can sit and watch the Queen Emma pontoon bridge swing open to let the ships through. That was worth it to me. The food was mediocre - hamburgers and such. We really liked the arepitas...More

I visit this place once a month, I just love the atmosphere on saturdays. Cozy and layback with live music. You sit right at the entrance of harbour so the view is awesome. Highly recommend this place. Food is good and won't break the bank....More

Nice location and excelent view. If you stay long enough you will enjoy the show of the bridge opening and closing ans the big boats go through a bit noisy but very nice.

Dinner at the Iguana Cafe is a must while visiting Curacao. Relax water side by the Pontoon bridge and enjoy the people watching. Food is good, prices reasonable and staff kind and friendly.

This place had the best frozen Carmel drink. It was so good my husband had to get one every day. Great outdoor sitting area by the water.

Right on the water, good view, nice outdoor area. Food is decent. A mix of Burgers, Sandwiches and some higher end dishes. Portions are big. A nice place to stop when you are in town.
