Ordered the Sashimi and the Bonbon of Mula as a starter which seemed to be a decent start of our two course dinner. The Sashimi was way too little for it's price but the Bonbon of Mula was good enough, not a special taste though. As we're both Gamba lovers we ordered as our main dish the 'Gambas met kop... More

The risotto is incredible, best in Curacao. The ambiance of the place cant be beat, relatively quite nestled on a deck above Spanish Water and Caracas Bay. Only downfall is the smoking, allowed at every table :-(

We had been here before and were quite enthusiastic that time, but that was already some years ago. Now when we returned we were a bit disappointed. Not the best service, even though it was. It busy. Good wasn't too great, they didn't have fresh shrimps, while they were on the menu. You still have a nice view over the... More

This restaurant has by far the best food on the island. We've been here five weeks and have eaten all over, from Saint Michal to Santa Barbara resort and nothing comes close. The Wednesday Rice Table is outstanding as any I've tried in the Netherlands. Dinner on the weekend is equally tasty if you do not like Indonesian food, we... More

The restaurant is located in Brakkeput Abou, and is one of my favourites. The view over the Spanish water is astonishing. The personnel is top class as it should be. Excellent wines, good menu, fine tasting. This restaurant is on my top list for fine dining. On Wednesdays they have Indonesian Walking Buffet (different price range however also well appreciated...

This was our most expensive dinner, but it was well worth it; dinner for 2 at $100.00 including a 20% tip. The food was delicious, well paired and had a beautiful presentation. We shared sashimi of tuna, scallops and lobster in a sesame soy dressing, halibut with bok choy and compote of cherry tomatoes and basil sauce and truffle risotto... More

Food takes too long and is too expensive for the quality and amount, paired with an arrogant hostess who was too busy with her friends to even look in our direction. They also refuse to serve tap water. Wouldn't reccomend unless you want to have a bad time.

The food is expensive and tasteless if you want to call it food. When the rude manager who seemed prejudice brought our plates to the table there was barely any food on it. Anyways she smiled at everyone else who wasn't my skin colour. Oh actually she smiled a little when I payed my bill. Great view though.

We were here on a Saturday afternoon to enjoy a sundowner Dinner. The view and the Atmosphere was really great. Wine and food were good, but the quantities were not sufficient for two hungry adults after a long day at the Beach. We chose the 6 boathouse appetizer and two main courses (ladies steak, halibut). Everything of high quality, but... More

Amazing view, fine French cuisine. The duck and mero fish were very nice. Dutch apple pie was a nice surprise. Service is very good. We love this place.
