Fantastic food for lunch - loved the coconut shrimp but the favorite was a drink called the “Kadushi” - green Curaçao, pineapple and coconut rum. And the setting right on the water in the Otrobanda section offers unobstructed and absolute charm.

The food was good. However, the beautiful, relaxed courtyard atmosphere is likely the reason for the great ratings. Easy parking right in front of the restaurant.

Ate at this restaurant the first night we landed in Curacao. The restaurant had a very cool vibe with an ocean view. The food was great. Must try the Caribbean Vibe for drinks.

Came here to celebrate my friends birthday. The staff was friendly, the food was great and the restaurant building was impressive. The only downside was the speed of service, it too a very long time to get food and drinks.
