So I came here 2x in my short visit. I did not eat here but I got the Blue Lagoon both times. I seriously could have this drink every day... Having tables lined up on the water front is so relaxing. I could sit here for hours and drink and just watch the bridge open and close. Instead of being... More

Great choices and very good prices. Staff was very nice to all of us and accommodating. definitely a... More

My wife and me used the facilities in one of our trips to Punda while we stayed at the Sunscape Resort. Best expresso we had in the island. Very confortable place. Waitress very friendly. A must if you visit Punda. Enjoy....

When visiting Punda you have to take a seat here and relax. Great view at the entrance of the harbor where you see The Queen Emma bridge open for the ships to enter or leave. Here you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner accompanied with live music.

We were passing by and my daughter asked for a smoothie which I thought was a great idea. Then I started to go through the menu and found it interesting and decided to take a table on the sidewalk on the very front of the bar. It worked very well for us. I ordered a platter of grilled meats (... More

We have visited Iguana cafe several times during our stay, not mainly for the food, bit because of the central location. It is really nice to sit there and watch the sea and the bridge open and close as ships enter the harbour. In the evenings they have had live music too - partly really good and partly not so...

Best place in Downtown to watch water and bridge open and close. Only place we found draft beer on the island.

Enjoyed an early evening cheeseburger while my wife enjoyed a crab salad. After walking around Williamsted, we relaxed by the river and the pontoon bridge and grabbed a bite. The shade and cooling mist fans were right on time.

We wanted to eat and drink on the canal for the view and the proximity to the cruise port. It took about 10 minutes just to get a beer, but at least it was cold on this hot july day. The servers all seemed not to care if you were happy because there were 100 other customers that would take... More

Love the view here. Don't like the sandwiches (the bread is just too soft for my taste), but I am very pleased with their snacks and cocktails. Like to come here late in the afternoon to enjoy a mozzarella stick or two and enjoy the view with a cocktail.

Thank Nikky R
