“Great ambiance!”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Loved this dining experience! Beautiful night, beautiful views, live music below us, and good food and drinks...Mojitos!
We read that the grouper Puerto Rican style was one of the best items on the menu. My boyfriend ordered it and really liked it. I'm personally not a fan of covering up fresh fish with all those ingredients. Way to much sauce and cheese for me! I had the mixed seafood grill and it was great! Nice and fresh...perfectly cooked!

“Great food choices - great restaurant and oh so cozy”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

This is one of my favourite places to have a pleasant restaurant experience. The service is great and the choices are very good too!! I have tried the espetadinha, the mero portuguese and the steak which are each very tasty in their own way, for the seafood lovers there is also a big variation (but im allergic so cant give an opinion on that). Besides the good food I have to say that mostly i like the ambience it has a cozy feel to it. And last but not least if you are a dessert lover - ask for the tres leches...it is perfection

“Nice restaurant with a great view”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

The food at O'Porte was good. Per the advise of Tripadvisor reviewers I had the grouper, Puerto Rico style, and my husband had the ribs. The grouper was very good, but not necessarily because of the fish. Ordering the Puerto Rico style means lots of cheese, avocados, plantains and then fish at the very bottom. Loving all these items, I thought it was delicious. My husband said the ribs were good, but we are from southern United States, so we have very good ribs all the time.

“Great view, great food, live music”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Close to our hotel Kura Hulanda (you could see it from a back terrace), we went because we had walked our feet off earlier and while we wanted to dress up a bit and have a nice anniversary dinner we didn't want to take a taxi to other restaurants recommended. We went early, had our choice of tables overlooking the harbor, the downstairs terrace and fountain. We weren't starving so were going to go with one appetizer and one dinner to split (give our week's experience with the size of meals everywhere we ate.) Our waitress said that she would recommend that the meals weren't that large - don't believe them! Both entrees were huge and really really good. The barbeque skewers were hung from an ingenious hanger over the plate and perfectly done. The fish was great. The service was attentive.

“Nice Surprise!!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

We asked our concierge for a Family Restaurant in the Downtown Area, we were really not looking for an expensive restaurant or something very local, However we want it to enjoy the famous Curacao Postcard View of the colorful buildings.

Being honest we didn't have our expectations too high when Alejandra (Our Concierge) recommended us the O'Porto Restaurant, she seems to know the owner so she can really get you the best of the tables.

They don't have a free shuttle from the resort but if you are staying in the Punda Side you can just walk the phantom bridge so you don't pay extra for the ride.

THE PUERTO RICAN GROUPER WAS AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS , My family loved the place and the spectacular view of the Curacao Famous Colorful Buildings with purple highlights, The service was really good , It was not expensive but fair for what you get.

The owner of the restaurant is very nice and attentive , he came to ask how was everything and he is very open for suggestions.

My kids loved the deserve and we all had a great family time.

Tips: Try their cocktails, they are not expensive compare to the Restaurants near by and they are really good.

IMPORTANT TIP: If you are visiting O'porto mostly for the view you better ask your personal concierge to call in advance to make sure they are not cruise ships coming in, otherwise your whole view will be ruined.
