Nice locations

Nice location on the top of the mountain overlooking the harbor. You can go to the For Nassau restaurant and see the site too.

We had a lovely dinner and the views were spectacular! I had the seafood trio and the boys had the chicken on the pri-fixe menu and said it was fabulous.!

This is offered as a party venue/event center but the basic structure remains and is a historic sight worthy of the trip. Signage is poor and the parking lots connect to make navigating here an odd experience but the sights from the top of the building make it worthy of a stop.

Fort Nassau is situated on a hill above Punda. It is probably the place that offers the best view of the Schottegat area, as you can see both Punda and Otrobanda, but also the refinery and the Queen Juliana Bridge from here. It's a beautiful historic building with garden and a restaurant that also has vegan options, albeit quite pricey.

nice location and good food around, strange that a building/house from a person who was high in slave trade is still standing in this island..

We took the Willemstad by NIghts tour and they took us to the roof top of Fort Nassau. Great panoramic of Willemstad at night.

Great location. Beautiful restaurant. Very romantic. Easy to find. the bridge was incredible and no tolls. If this was New York you would be paying $25 to cross this bridge. Thank you Netherlands for paying for this bridge.

the food is good, but the restaurant is a little pricy considering they're so many others. But the view and the ambiance is what you pay for. Worth it !
