Probably the best service we had on our tour of the ABC islands. The colonial balcony is a fantastic place to have dinner overlooking the waterfront of Willemstad. Dinner and service was very good. By North American standards, it was pretty expensive, but food in the ABCs was expensive by our standards, maybe not so bad for Europeans.

Picture post card view from second floor covered outdoor deck. Nice breeze (sometimes very gusty) kept it comfortable. Liesurely but attentive service, we had a nice lunch. My steak sandwich with cheddar on dark bread delicious and tender, generous portion of fries and salad. My better half opted for a Karni Stoba, local beef stew, very tasty. Lunch with bottled sparkling water and coffee just under $40 (US). We watched some large ocean ships enter/leave the harbor, and the ferrys working while the bridge swung open and closed a few times. Recommended by a local as the best food with the best view in Willemstad, it was great. A nice memory indeed.

The view of Punda & the walking bridge were perfect! Really enjoyed our dinner. We caught happy hour and had fun choosing "bartender's choice" so we were pleasantly surprised by their drinks. We moved over to the restaurant section for dinner and had a great time. The food was cooked perfect and the presentation was very impressive. The interior and exterior of the restaurant were very pretty. View couldn't be beat. Highly recommend.

Well prepared food, in good portions. French frites as a side dish was too much. We had dinner in the garden at the back of the house, in a beautiful set up. View on pontjies bridge was phenomenal.

One of the best restaurants we experienced on the island! First of all the view is absolutely gorgeous - shows the lighted Emma Pontoon Bridge and Punda. the presentation of our food was very pretty and it tasted delicious. The service was exceptional and our waitress was very helpful. The ambiance of the courtyard was beautiful and romantic. That was our first night in Curacao. A week later on a Wednesday night, we went back and the only difference is that it took forever to get our food!!! Not a good last impression - have no idea why the difference. All in all - you don't want to miss this dining experience. You may come on a good night! :-)
