We ate there several times while we stayed at the resort. They have a really good Jazz Night on Thursdays and it was full to capacity. Everyone enjoyed the band and the food is very good.

We ordered ribs but the food was cold and service sloppy and unfriendly. Go on a music night. it is busier and people seemed to like the food better. Great ambiance on music nights!

Food was ok but not spectacular compared to other places on the island. Service is excellent. Attentive very friendly and accommodating staff. Would recommend for a different type of evening but was a bit disappointed with food overall.

I stayed at the Avila Hotel so I like to try the restaurants that are offered at the hotel. Blues Bar was my first meal when I got to Curacao. Had the burger. It was amazing.
