At a romantic spot at Brakkeput, the Boathouse may be the hidden jewel of Curaçao. Truly superb food, diligently spiced, and richly flavored. A very attractive menu for all tastes. Nice, attentive service. Great sunset.

This was our least enjoyable meal in Curacao. The service was very good, and they create a lovely atmosphere with just the right amount of music and tables that generously spaced. That said, the food was mediocre at best. Though this ventures into 'Woody Allen' territory... our fish was overcooked and dry - and 'such small portions'. We ended up... More

A bit overpriced for the meal and drinks. My hubby's mahi mahi was "fishy" and left a lot to be desired. The views are great, but that's about all that was good. Wouldn't recommend this one.

Beautifully perched above the bay this is the best dining we have found so far in this area of Curacao. A bit on the expensive side but worth it. Our waiter was attentive at just the correct moments; something that is hard to master.

During our vacation in Curacao last Christmas, we booked Christmas dinner in that restaurant, to our surprise even when the parking lot was a bit messy, the quality of care of the staff was the best and the menu was immaculate, beautifully presented and delicious, I recommend it at any time during your visit to the island of curacao.

We found this establishment to be a satisfying dining experience. We started by splitting the very tasty spinach ravioli as an appetizer. Our daughter was satisfied with the parma ham salad. Our son loved the coquilles appetizer. For our main course we ordered the snapper and we were totally delighted with it's quality. The service was above average, especially for... More

View, service, and food were amazing. Vary clean restaurant. If you want a quiet secluded dinner this is the best. We eat here every time we come to Curacao.
