Fort Nasseau is a cool restaurant at the top of a hill that has a 360 view of Curacao. During the day, you can see the oil refineries which aren't much to look at, but the night view is fantastic. The city lights and the floating bridge make for a beautiful background during dinner. We stopped at the restaurant around... More

Thank you landog78 for rating Fort Nassau as cool, delicious and friendly! We agree it is cool to dine in an historic restaurant, 220 years old. Especially with the extra bonus of good food and a gorgeous view. I will pass your compliments about the staff on to them, thank you! More

The food here is good. The restaurant looks chique and so is the style of the waiters too. The food is a bit expensive but definitely not too bad. We had only a simple soup and enjoyed the view over the city. I recommend to sit inside to have a scenic view over the iluminad refinery

Thank you Leon o for your review, glad to see you enjoyed your visit with us, despite just having an appetizer. Especially nice to read about your preference for 'the other' view at Fort Nassau. Indeed at night it is nice with the millions of mini twinkling lights. Thank you for mentioning that! More

Loved the ambiance of the restaurant. The view of downtown in nice. You should get there before sunset to enjoy it. The food was great tasting and beautifully presented.

Went there while on a cruise, got there right about sunset, it was a Wednesday night, not many people when we arrived, but it got busy throughout our meal. Had a stunning view of the bridge and river in Curacao, the food was very good, my wife and step sons said the drinks were good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch: the food was good, service excellent and staff friendly. This is all on top of one of the best views in Curacao of both the harbor and Punda/Otrabonda.

If you are looking for something different than the hustle of Willemstad take the quick journey over to Fort Nassau. The views are great, atmosphere is laid back, and the food was delicious. We had the Dijon mustard soup, pumpkin ravioli, and medley of Caribbean fish - plus a cheese plate.

We enjoyed a sunset dinner here last night overlooking Willemstad. The wine list was quite limited, but the food options all were enticing. The veal and the escargots appetizers were excellent, as were the beef tenderloin, pork loin, and the sirloin. The pasta was somewhat disappointing, but the desserts definitely made up for it. It's a beautiful venue that is... More
