This restaurant is a nice place to sit and eat, specially just before the sun goes down. The restaurant offers either a balcony view of Punda or you can choose to sit "outside" within a small enclosed area that is lovely to sit in. The food itself changes from time to time, but the few times we've eaten there it... More

This restaurant has one of the greatest views on the island; its the first place I visit when I arrived to Curacao. Dinner and attention is very good (price/quality), its right at the harbor entrance. While having dinner (be sure to reserve a table on the front covered area) and enjoying the view towards historic Punda, you might be surprised... More

On our second night in Curacao we visited this nice, relaxed and ambient restaurant. The service, the Carribean Chicken and the Catch of the day fish were plenty, Carribean like and tasteful. Service was very good as well and so was the price for value. All in all a must for those visiting Curacao.

We had lunch at this restaurant a couple of days ago. It was a hot day and the waitresses was very helpful bringing drinks fast. A stunning view over Willemstad from the veranda. The patio and bar looked very inviting and I wish we could go back for drinks later. I had the Tuna and my bf had the goat... More

We ate here on our second night in Curacao. We did not have a reservation and were told that they could have something for us in 20 minutes so we sat at the bar, ordered some drinks and then realized that the high top tables on the deck in the bar area are seat yourself and just took one of...

The restaurant is very nice located within the city of Willemstad. WIthin a historical building and with a great view! We asked for a table on the balcony so we'd see the cruiseship docked in the harbour. The food was really good, they serve a nice combination of local and international dishes. Service was terribly slow and we actually had... More

If you are on Curacao , you have to take your lunch on the terrace at the Gouverneur. Take the little boat who brings you From the other side to the restaurant. You Will eat a traditional salad like a ceasar salad with chicken and Enjoy the view on the water and the refreshing winds From the terrace

My wife and I had a great meal at Governor's in early November 2016. We reserved a table outside on the balcony 3 days prior to arriving at the restaurant to ensure we had a great view. We arrived about an hour before our reservation to take advantage of their daily 1/2 price drinks in the Motown Soul Bar. Once... More

Enjoy a drink outdoors (the Motown Special is a purple delight) with a view of the Queen Emma Bridge. Reserve a spot on the terrace for dinner. Great atmosphere. Limited but excellent menu; recommend the seafood. But be prepared to wait -- you're on island time.
