We were seated promptly and then waited over a half hour for water and for someone to take our order. Once we ordered it was over 45 minutes until dinner was served. The seafood was good but overpriced. When we said something to the manager he acknowledged our concerns, however, we were still not served.

This restaurant is located at the Punda side in the Waterfort boogjes, at the seaside. Nice location with a view at sea. It was a year ago since we had dinner there the last time. Food and service were always excellent. This time I expected more of the same for our dinner last night. The appetizers were not bad, the... More

From the locals we were told this is second to Fishalisicious that we never made it to... We did end up twice here in a few days. We had great service one night, just so/so another. We had great food both evenings, both fish dishes that were prepared well, along with the ceviche that was good although a bit straightforward... More

We ordered a couple of entrees: lobster cocktail and tuna causa limeña. Both took something around 30 minutes to arrive. The lobster wasn't fresh and the causa was done with canned tuna. The owner is very friendly and nice, but the food speaks otherwise.

I made a reservation on christmas eve, it was very busy of course. But I got a dirty and a bad table,but the food was delicious and the live music was also great. After all it is a nice place the price is not expansive and not cheap.

Very good restaurant. You are on island time and the service was not fast. It took about twenty minutes to get our drink order in and then another ten to order our food. They have a good cheese biscuit that they bring out before then dinner arrives. We had the fresh red snapper, surf and turf, filet, BBQ ribs, and... More

We were here resting and having a beverage after walking the streets and shopping. We ended up staying a bit longer than expected as it started pouring rain, but under the covered roof it was dry and beautiful. We had a few more beers pass our time there! Lovely view of the bridge and colorful architecture of Willamstad!

My review is based on our experience dealing with this restaurant. The place uses Internet reservation system that confirms your reservation and even sends you a reminder email 2 days before. I made a reservation for 7 people for 24th night to celebrate double birthdays, including my son's 30th. When we arrived we found the restaurant closed. And this is... More

They seated us by the water , where the waves crashed and splashed but we were safe and dry. Very romantic. Great service. Great food!

Sitting by the waves was fun, if noisy. The food was good if expensive. The service was so slow we had to ask after our food twice and almost had to beg for the check. The alcohol came promptly. Even the dish of cornbread (one piece each) took a long time to arrive.

Thank David N
