We stopped here for lunch while we were visiting town. We had frozen drinks called Blue Lagoon which I would highly recommend. It is basically a pina colada with blue Curacao added. We also had lunch there but I would recommend this for drinks and the view only. Staff was attentive and if you ask the manager they can reserve... More

My boyfriend and I ate here because we were told on a tour that they serve iguana and we wanted an iguana burger. They do not have iguana burgers. Good is really good though and the view is awesome, it's near the swing bridge and you can view the channel and colorful houses while you eat. Service was relatively quick... More

Visited here a couple of times to sit and watch the ships come in and out of port, it's a nice place to people watch and see the general goings on in Willemstad. Service is pretty good and the staff all seem nice, they are quite busy a lot of the time. Food is average and there are plenty better... More

Stopped here for a quick drink and shared an appetizer to watch a big ship go by. Great scenic view happened to be there for happy hour so drinks where half prize (win!) we shared the calamari and it was the best I've ever had. Fresh and not over powered by breaking! Excellent service as well.

If you want a place to hang out, have a few drinks and watch the ships come into the harbor, this is it. The live music is also nice. The food is mediocre but reasonably priced.

A fun little sidewalk café/bar. I have nothing great nor bad to say about the Iguana Café. It's a fun little place.

It's breathtaking view at night was the perfect way to start out trip. We had dinner and some drinks with my fam. The sex on the beach cocktail was to die for and the service was excellent as well. However, we had to wait for a table around 15 minutes cause it was full and the service ladies were really... More

We had lunch at this cafe which is situated right on the waterway where you can watch the floating bridge and cruise ships go by. The bridge opens to let the ships pass through and then they dock close by. The food at this restaurant is excellent. One of us had lamb, which was out of this world good. I... More

We've been to Curaçao twice and both times we've stopped at this waterfront cafe for lunch while shopping. It's so nice to relax in the shade and watch the water and the sights from here. Not to mention the food is really good! Try the lamb burrito, it's fabulous!

When the cruise ships come in it will be crowded. It's a nice spot overlooking the the water entrance and see the bridge opens. Service and the food are ok considering the amount of people.
