Great view, good service. Well located in town with access to shopping. Dine outside on the patio if you have a chance.

We stopped here for lunch twice. I couldn't get enough of the spicy banana soup. The cocktails were okay and there was indoor and outdoor seating, some with views of the inlet (more specifically of a cruise ship).

Some of the best food and fastest service we received during our visit to Willemstad. We had a party of 12, which the restaurant accommodated very well. Beautiful setting.

It was supposed to be so great, but it was terrible.

Only good thing was the view of the other side of the channel. Service was by far the worst we experienced the whole time. I swear the server took a nap between our order and when the food came out (over 30 minutes!). The server was pissed off and could tell she didn't like tourists.

The restaurant itself is really nice though and has an adorable courtyard.

Don't go if you are starving hungry!

Stopped in for a late lunch while walking around Willemstad. The location is pretty convenient to the "main" sights in town. The Rif Fort is a short walk and the ferry is across the street. We sat on the balcony overlooking the inlet. During our meal we saw the bridge swing open a few times - once to let a cruise ship out. That was a cool thing to see.

The food overall was pretty good but the soups were amazing. We had the Cuban banana soup and the Tuscany style fish soup. Both were fantastic!! That alone was worth the stop. The panini we split was average as was the dessert (flan). As we have experienced in most of Curacao service isn't a top priority and that was the case here. Our server wasn't really attentive even though they weren't busy.

If I stop back in, it would probably be just for the soups. The presentation was fantastic and so was the flavor.
