“Waw, look at the view!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

I haven't been in this restaurant for many years.. I just went once (long ago) and then the food was good. Moreover we had such a nice view of Punda. The restaurant Gouverneur de Rouville is situated in Otrobanda.

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

“Get the banana soup”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

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).

“Good food, good service, beautiful courtyard seating”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

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.

“Terrible!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

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!
