  • It is interesting to visit the Fort with her guns still exposed, certainly not ready to fire. Drake and his companions of snacks were home from around here!

  • We have only drink in the restaurant. Thus we can not say directly about the food. The food of the other guests looked but all appealing and very good. Very friendly staff especially worth mentioning.

  • No wonder that this was developed by the Dutch as a fort to guard over the harbour below. Wonderful vistas by night and by day.  more »

  • We had a wonderful time here for dinner and the food was delicious!! Beautiful views and great service. Thanks to our server Stephanie for a wonderful dining experience! I definitely would come back.
  • Nice restaurant with great views and good food. Old fort on mountain overlooking port. Menu is a bit fancy so if you like common food then might not be for you. Also make sure you ask for an outdoor seat. Inside seats look at refinery, not nice.
  • It was a nice visit. Service was excelent. Food was from good quality.
  • Great food and the most amazing views. Highly recommend!
  • Food quality is ok at best, but the view is worth the visit. Not sure of Curacao food is present at all at this location.
