Excellent food and the service was great. Also a must to stop by the lounge for happy hour. And the Motown music was nice to listen to - have a beverage and watch the activities in the harbor

The view and place is a must in Willemstad Curacao. The banana soup is a plate that must be selected as a complete discovery, the rest of the menu is just ok above the average.

This restaurant offers great food and service, the best I experienced in my visit to the island. You can either sit in the terrace and see the boats pass by or sit in the beautiful patio. They have two bbqs they call the green egg to prepare the meats which in our case were prepared to perfection. I highly recommend... More

Made advance reservations for six of us on the balcony. They gave us the most beautiful private side balcony. It was perfect! Until it rained that is. There was no cover what so ever.
