My girlfriend and I had just flown in from New York and did all we could to get a seat here. Luckily, it worked out. This was one of the meals we’ve ever had, including many of the high-end places in New York. The food...was incredible, speaking to both the culinary prowess and artistry. Equally as good was the environment and professionalism. But what really stood out to me, was the knowledge and hospitality provided by the Niels, the sommelier. Niels, thanks so much for making the evening incredible and for the great cocktails. We did the tasting menus and Niels crafted custom cocktails that accompanied the meals. It was perfection. The price was higher than most elsewhere on the island, but compared to any meal/experience of similar quality it was on par to affordable. Thanks for an incredible evening.More

My partner and I tried to book a table in a restaurant for our anniversary. We called for a few times, but every time slot we asked for was busy, when we asked what time was available, the staff could not come up with any...options at all week in advance. Very disappointing, unprofessional and arrogant attitude.More

We had the privilege of dining here for 11 nights for our honeymoon. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The food is some of the best we have ever ate. The chefs all introduced themselves to us which was a treat. Waitstaff was incredible-so kind and...polite-we started to know everyone on a first name basis! Baoase is a true fine dining experience every single night. We also had daily breakfast and lunch. We truly never got sick of dining here!! All the meals we have had since we have left Baoase have been boring and a let down in comparison! If you are in Curacao looking for somewhere to dine, this restaurant is stunning, romantic, and has sensational food. Look no further and book a resvartion now!!More

We had a great evening dining at Baoase. The set up was amazing and very romantic, all the little touches under our private pagoda were very well done and made it a very memorable meal to celebrate the end of our honeymoon. The service was also...very good. Since making the reservation my wife also found out she was pregnant, which comes with a number of dietary restrictions we are discovering! The staff were very accommodating and seemed clued up on what you can and can't have preparing her separate items to my surprise meal. The portions were very generous and very well presented. Personally I would have preferred a slightly smaller starter so I wasn't quite so full, it felt like having two main courses, however, appriciate not everyone might agreed and the food was too good to waste. I still managed to find room for the desserts which were very light and incredibly tasty. Thank you to all the chef's. The only thing I would say was that I ordered red wine when sitting at the table which maybe wasn't the best choice with the surprise menu. I think there may have been a wine pairing option which would have worked better not knowing what food was coming my way and I would have probably gone with this if made aware. A full bodied red wasn't the best choice with cod, although overall an amazing experience and highly recommendable.More

I wanted to created a wonderful celebration for my friend who turned 50. My friend loves sunsets and so I wanted to find the best place. Google gave me three options and I selected Baoase. When I contacted them, they were easy to work with...and understood my request. I selected the four course surprise dinner. It literally was a surprise but all the food was delectable. I have been to Michelin rated restaurants in NYC and Chicago and this definitely compares. Not only is the food delicious but the ambiance was so romantic. We ate in the gazebo. There was a small waterfall in the back. We watched the sunset on the Helipad with champagne. Who else can say that? If you are in Curacao, you definitely want to splurge and eat here.More

Baoase offers a Caribbean dining experience equal to those available in the finest restaurants of metropolitan cities of the world. Its outdoor dining setting is heavenly. The prices of most of the menu items are also heavenly, but you are on vacation, so go and...enjoy a meal you will remember for a long time. Dishes are French influenced, very sophisticated with delicately balanced flavors. Even though we opted for the a la carte menu, the meal started out with many wonderful tastes that were part of the sitting. Everything we ordered was superb. The service was excellent; after having a large, loud party seated next to us, we asked to move our seating and were promptly and cheerfully shown to a nicer table. The wine list was a pleasant surprise. Although you won't find many low-cost bottles here, the markup (compared to what is customary in the U.S.) was very small, and we had a terrific Bordeaux at a very reasonable price.More
