The main course (Tuna steak on top of Thai noodles) was getting a bit cold on the outside when it arrived at the table. The home made... More

Nice place, good food, views to the Spanish waters. Nice service even fast when compared to other restaurants at curaçao. Pumping soup is spicy and tasty and the desserts apple crumbles, and chocolate cake where excellent. Also the shrimp pasta was good. When early dinner also nice for children, they have special list also for children.

The food was poorly done, the service was good and friendly. I was with friends and family there and we ordered different courses but all were to salty and did have a really good taste, I never went back.

Trust the TripAdvisor crowd on this one. Surprisingly friendly staff. Excellent food and a warm, refined atmosphere. We enjoyed the shrimp appetizer and the beet appetizer. Wine selection was excellent; I recommend the Pinot Noir. Lion Fish well prepared. Apple crumb dessert so good. Nice marina and Spanish waters view. A great place to hang out for an after dinner...
