This restaurant is a little bit challenging to get to but google maps and garmin both drive you directly to it. It's too hot in the daytime to try to do lunch so the restaurant is only open for dinner. The view from their deck is spectacular, overlooking one of the marinas in Spanish Waters. You are up high so... More

The restaurant is a little hard to find but well worth it. The view over the inner bay in the evening is not spectacular at night but would be fantastic at sunset which is when this is probably at its most popular. This is not fine dining but good solid tasty cooking. My main gripe is that they would not... More

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.
