Best grilled snapper on the island! Have it with the beans and rice. The margaritas are made with fresh lime juice, can't beat that! A menu filled with delicious food and reasonably priced. Staff was lovely and attentive. Create a unique memory, jump off the...terrace, 45 ft down into the Caribbean blue ocean or sit and relax and enjoy the view!More

The restaurant offers a breathtaking view over the coast of Westpunt. The terrace is situated on top of the cliffs of Playa Forti right till the edge. The food is unexpecedly good. Unexpected because it is a big restaurant with many guests. But still: waiters/waitresses...are quick and polite, always helpful, the food is really good.More

We did a trip around the Westend of the island today and stopped here for lunch. Red snapper was very good. My wife and friends had burgers which they said were good. Be sure to jump off the cliff into the water. Great fun.

Stopped by for lunch because we were drawn in by the restaurant perched on a cliff. The view was great and the staff friendly and helpful. I had the conch and my wife the chicken satay. The conch was novel. Most like squid that was...a bit overcooked. The chicken satay was fine.More

The view here is great. Service was good. No wait for a table for lunch. My wife and I both had #7, which I can't for the life of me remember what it was called. It is a local dish where they put pulled pork,...ground beef, and peppers on a lettuce leaf, then cover that with a white cheese and melt it. It was kind of like a pot-pie, but very good. Never had anything like it before.More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting Shete Boca National Park. Staff were warm, pleasant and efficient. The restaurant has outdoor seating with great views of the coastline. We had fried lion fish and goat stew. Both came with a choice of two sides- rice...and beans & tostones. The fish was sweet, firm and tasty. The stew meat was tender and delicious. A great place to stop for lunch, enjoy the views and local foods.More

Great diner style restaurant to grab a casual bite with an amazing view. Food is priced reasonably and the view is mesmerizing at sunset. I went there a couple of times for the convenience and for the view.

The atmosphere and view were great!!! Can't beat the view (make sure to get an outside table on the deck overlooking the ocean). I had the Garlic Shrimp. It was fine, nothing special. The funchi fries were good!!! The service was slow, but I was...with a large group. The waitresses were nice. A tad pricy, but you're paying for the view.More

Solid 5-Star experience here. Great customer service. Awesome views. Fantastic food. Excellent prices. And jumpers. Not at all crowded for a Saturday. The waiter was right there. The Ceviche was delicious fresh catch Tuna. She had the also fresh catch Tuna Steak rare and I...had the Keshi Yena, both of which were awesomeness. The place has a good breeze, excellent ambiance and cool vibe. The staffers are all friendly and happy. The beer somehow just taste better here. Looking forward to working our way through the menu. Top 5 on the island for us. We originally planned for take-out but decided to stay.More

It was my husband’s 50th and we left the house on Soto a little on the late side, we called a few restaurants and all were closing the kitchen at 8pm. We had lunch at this place and we knew the food was great so...we tried and without an issue, we were seated and enjoyed a delicious meal. August the owner was super nice and his staff is great. We highly recommend having a drink or a meal there. The views are great, the kids have fun and it’s the perfect spot to stop in between beach hopping or on your way home. Can’t wait for go back ❤️More

We stopped by this location being on the Irie west coast bus tour of Curaçao. We were seated on the covered deck right next to the sea. Stunning views of the sea. Wait staff was very friendly, welcoming and answered questions about the menu. My...wife had the cheeseburger with fries & I had the local mahi mahi selection with rice & beans. Overall. excellent seafood dish. Word of warning, fish bones are still in the fillet, but adds to the experience. Thank you for an excellent lunch today !! Would drop by again next time we’re on the island.More

So we stumbled upon this restaurant after leaving playa piskado. We were headed to another beach and thought we'd have a quick bite. The location and views are beautiful. Ppl do jump the cliff right next to the tables. And there's an iguana feeding station...right there which was really fun. And also a children's play area that my daughter really liked. The food was solid and pretty good! However, the service speed was beyond slow. Beyond "island time." We wanted to order more drinks but couldn't get anyone to come back to our table. We wanted to leave to continue our beach adventures but we could not get anyone to bring us a check. I finally went to the bar and waited until they figured it up, otherwise I'm not sure it would have ever come. We were there close to 2.5 hours and would have been longer had I not gone to the bar to get our check. If you want a long leisurely lunch, with no check backs for further food or drink, then this is the place.More
