Great views, good steaks and delicious desserts. Selection of steaks was elaborate, as was the choice of desserts. Salad bar wasn't worth the extra charge and a bit of a disappointment. Otherwise recommend El Gaucho for a classic steak dinner.

They had a really good tenderlion but the dessert plate was the treat. They were French desserts and all were delicious. Considering the normal slow service in Curacao, they were pretty on the spot.
