“Good food and location!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

We were tipped to go here by many other friends that came to the island and where not disappointed.

The food was really good, service very friendly and the location is really nice as it overlooks Punta.

Two tips: make a reservation and if you have a rental car and stay at the Punta side of the large bridge, park at the large curaçao sign and just walk to the restaurant instead of driving over the bridge.

“The Best restaurant in Curacao”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We first took lunch here the second day on the Island. Beef stew sandwich. Very tasty! We then decided to book for dinner a few days later. I had read about the Banana soup and decided to select it as a starter. Wow yummie! For main course we took fish as main course that also was very deliscious. We also booked a table at the veranda and the view is just awesome!

“Great for group bookings”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

We did a tour of curacao and ended the evening with dinner here. Drinks with a great view and the dinner in the courtyard. Service was great and the tuna sashimi entree is a must!

“The only thing good about this place is its location and building.”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Terrible terrible service and average food. The manager was quite nice but the servers couldnt care less about their clients.
It is really well located, great view and patio.
If you go there, get some drinks but have dinner somewhere else, dont waste your money eating there.

“Great building!”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

The building was once the Governor's mansion, lending the great ambiance. Several great seating areas, even in the inside gardens. A view from the porch covers the bay and swinging bridge in action!
The food was good. A must have is the Cuban banana soup! Sweet with a bit of island spice!
The steak was well prepared with a side of au gratin potatoes.
Another definite dinner spot to hit in Willemstad.
