I stood in the island for 10 days and had the opportunity to taste the top 5 restaurants according to trip advisor. Without doubt this is the best of the island! Service - exceptional, food taste - impressive, and money-value equation great. It's totally unfair that it is ranked as number 2! The restaurant is family operated and the have... More

The main course was tasty and the dessert delicious. So overall the food is good - no question about that. But: the food is absolutely overpriced. The fish as main course is between 60-80 ANG (30-40€). For that price the food is not special enough. In addition the service was professional but not really "friendly". We found many other restaurants... More

Very fine dining experience, with great wines and a classic French menu. This is a traditional French cuisine restaurant where you'll find escargots, duck, foie gras, etc. I highly recommend the truffled pasta, the carpaccios and the duck. Food is great and service is warm and professional. A great experience.

Over the years I have dined there several times. The á la carte is good to excellent, sometimes a bit on the salty side. The service is fantastic, warm and friendly and THE BOS, Nico is usually there to have a chat with his clients. I especially like to visit the Wine Cellar during lunch time, as it is always... More

Do not pass this place up if your looking for a night out of fine dining, top notch service, food to die for and a great atmosphere! We are Americans that have lived here for 13 years, trust us when we say this place is great! We normally eat here on every holiday or special day.

Good business restaurant in the middle of town. Service is adequate, while food is high end. Parking is available most of the time. Recommended.

Service, cuisine , ambiance all culminated to a perfect evening. Staff are attentive and helpful. Our appetizers of tuna carpaccio and scallops were outstanding. Her entree was a healthy portioned salmon steak with vegetables and mashed potato- she gave it a 10 ( it was perfectly cooked, not dry or crumbled ) His entree consisted of sautéed shrimp with rice,...

Nico, the owner even took the time to come over and sit with us for an island history chat. Service was great...and don't forget to... More

I've been to 5 of the top 10 Curaçao restaurants currently on tripadvisor, and I would say this was one of the best. The meal I had was perfectly cooked and tasted amazing. My main was delicious filet of fresh fish - it was either a halibut or sea bass - don't remember exactly as it was a few weeks... More

The Wine Cellar is a perfect place for a lovely dinner on the Island. My husband had a great filet mignon and i had the best rack of lamb that i have ever tasted. The sweet dessert with crepes completed the evening. We tried this restaurant our first night on Curaçao and were amazed by the delicious food and wine... More
