  • After reading several comments on the sunset seen from the Fort we went to check out and beyond the wonderful sunset, the view from the top is a must!!! The restaurant is beautiful and seems to be very good ... How to open only the 18 we would have to wait so we went to another location.

  • Unbeatable views, service is a little slow but it's the island life. Updated menu now excellent, snails and fish medley were fresh and memorable.
  • The pork was very dry, the remaining food was mediocre and the service was substandard bordering on poor. For the prices here I expect MUCH more. The view is great but you can't just live on your view. I won't return.
  • Absolutely great place to be! Amazing view over Willemstad! It's worth to make a walk to this place.
  • Very good food at a great location. The service is also splendid.
  • Good food. Great view and lovely experience.
