  • We had dinner here while on our honeymoon. The view alone was breathtaking. The food was delicious. Cannot wait to go back. 
  • nice location and good food around, strange that a building/house from a person who was high in slave trade is still standing in this island.. 
  • You have a nice view of the schottegat and the harbor of Curacao from Fort Nasau. And especially in the evening a magnificent view if you see all the lights of the island.

  • 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.
