Our outside table overlooked the waterfront and the colorful buildings. They have a few local dishes as well as sandwiches. We ate there for lunch while on a cruise. The service was OK and the food was fine.

We went with my wife for dinner and found the place very charming. It's soberly decorated and the view to the channel, specially from the balcony, is breathtaking. We did had to wait a long time for our main course but it was totally worth it since both of them (daily fish with creole sauce and shrimps à la carte) were both delicious. The service was also really fine. Really recommendable!

The food and location of this restaurant is great. However, we had to wait a long time. Tables next to us got food earlier even though they arrived after us. After asking the waitress about it, she said that the reason was that the other tables were smaller: each 2 instead of 4 people.
I don't quite understand that, 2x2 is 4, too but well... It is worth the waiting though especially if you sit in the backyard. The scenery is beautiful.
You should definitely go here to eat but make a reservation upfront to be sure you get a table.

We were tipped to go here by many other friends that came to the island and where not disappointed.

The food was really good, service very friendly and the location is really nice as it overlooks Punta.

Two tips: make a reservation and if you have a rental car and stay at the Punta side of the large bridge, park at the large curaçao sign and just walk to the restaurant instead of driving over the bridge.
