The last timeI ate there was three years ago, and it is still consistent and good. Excellent views. The service was superb.

This was one of our favorite places in Curacao and the traditional karni soba is not to be beat. We had a yummy lunch there and went back for more the next night for dinner. Happy hour was also deilcious with a very friendly bartender and some delicious mixed drinks. The view from the balcony is also pretty amazing.

Very nice restaurant with great food. Our server was polite and spoke good English. We found out that he was from Brooklyn, NY before moving to Holland and then to Curacao.

De gouverneur is an nice upscale restaurant on the Otrobanda side of Willemstad. The patio outside has a gorgeous view of the Punda side, and inside there is a very romantic courtyard. My wife had a fantastic steak, while I opted for a Dutch Caribbean specialty: Keshi Jena. This dish mixes Caribbean chicken with plums and Dutch cheese, melted all over the chicken. Very good. De gouverneur also stood out, because they have the most attentive waiters we saw on Curacao. They actually paid attentions to us, and had none of the 'what, I have to serve you?' attitude that is so prevalent on the island. Pricing is better than at neighboring La Bahia and very decent for the quality you get. The view from both places is equally gorgeous.

Food was great!!! The service was excellent. We ate outside on a balcony so we were able to watch the bridge open and close when ships were brought in. Lots of fun!
