This place is amazing. Fantastic views, very friendly & accommodating service for all ages. The steaks & ribs were the best we have ever tasted. Fried yucca is a must try. Thank you for an awesome evening !

Hillside location for this completely open-air restaurant provides a great broad-island view, especially at sunset. This is our go-to restaurant for Argentinian Churrasco Steak with a Malbec wine. Also, featuring a salad bar and delicious charred grilled mixed vegetables.

The steak was awesome! Just to the point, extreme good quality for the island. Vegetables not overcooked (which is rate on Curacao!) and the ambiente was nice as staff was friendly and helpful. The view over Curacao at night is nice as well.
