“Just ok!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

Maybe it was the pre-fix menu I had since I was with a large group but I wasnt really impressed. I had a beef stew that was extremely dry and didnt have any gravy on it at all. It probably would have been tasty if it had some gravy on it. The salad while ok barely had any dressing and by the time they brought me extra my soup that I did not like at all was out. It was some kind of banana soup. If I come back here maybe I would try it again, but eating off the regular menu.

“Delicious, Authentic Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We chose this place, based on the menu out front and were glad we did. We sat in the courtyard which was beautiful and had lots of romantic ambiance. I had the traditional Curacao dish of beef stew and my husband had the chicken stuffed with dates. His was good, but mine was exceptional! The service didn't wow me, but wasn't bad. Definitely would recommend.

“Fine cuisine with lovely harbor view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a lovely lunch before our visit to the adjacent slave museum. The chef was very creative wih presentation and everything tasted fresh and original. Service was great and the view of the harbor is the best. Be sure to walk around the courtyard to take in the entire ambiance. Wood floors looked original to the building.

“Lovely building and view of the harbor.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Nice place for lunch as long as you reserve one of the few covered tables on the outdoor balcony with view of water. Try the banana soup! Other food we tried was fine but house wines could be improved.
