The prices were good, the drinks were good, the ice cream was great and the view is really nice. Can’t go wrong for a drink and ice cream. I don’t know anything about the meals.

The location is very unique right beside the floating bridge which is very cool to see. Good coffee and delicious ice cream. Service was desultory but not as slow as many places in Curacao.

Sorta corny drinks, but solid food, not that expensive and great location. We were walking home from the floating market and stopped here. Perfectly happy.

This is a great place to grab a cold drink. It is very entertaining at night. There is usually a live band playing. One can sit there and enjoy the lovely view of the harbor. The bridge swings open and the boats come and go.

Nice place for a drink at the Handelskade in Punda / Willemstad. Relax and see the people and boats pass by.
