This was a great time eating out by the pool after the sun had set. The appetizers were spectacular. The rest of the dinner was very good, but my wife wants to go back just for those starters!

The restaurant was out of the "fish of the day" and almost every wine you asked for. The risotto was not cooked properly and smoked salmon was added that completely ruined the dish. I understand the island is considered dutch, but do you have to add salmon?? For the price, the quality of the food, and the price, I would... More

Good. Located in the Marriott Hotel. I typically pay attention to the price because the price does affect my rating of the food however this restaurant was part of my vacation package, The food was all good. I had the surf and turf and it was great for the most part. The filet mignon was overcooked but some other guests... More

My brother made reservations as an anniversary present for my wife and me....it was lobster night and it was excellent. They had decorated our table with rose petals and the service was fabulous! The lobster was sweet and tender and the other courses did not disappoint either!! Special thanks to Kenneth for the wonderful service!!

People and the food here are amazing. Atmosphere to match. Quiet, elegant, and beautifully prepared and presented. Would recommend to all. Not cheap but so worth it.

We met in the Lobby of the hotel and walked down the stairs to the restaurant. At the door we were greeted with a smile, and led to our table. The waitress was friendly and we had some small talk while looking at the wine chart. We had the bean soup and beef carpaccio as entrees, and both of us... More

This restaurant is located at the Marriott Hotel. If you are in the mood for Italian food, then go to this restaurant. The food was great as was the service.

Food was very good. Service was very good. It was fairly pricey but you get what you pay for. We were staying at the hotel so it was very convenient. Most restaurants on the island were equally expensive.

My husband and I dined at Portofino Restaurant twice last week while staying at the Marriott Beach Resort. The al fresco experience in the garden was lovely. I absolutely loved the preparation of my Halibut entree. We both had a spinach/goat cheese/ pine nuts salad and it was delish! I highly recommend this restaurant for your dining pleasure. Ask for...

Totally overpriced and rip-off as the other restaurants from the Marriott Curacao. It's a shame and an offense to Italian Cuisine. We had the pasta with shrimps, sea food risotto and asparagus risotto. None of the plates were tasty! Sea food risotto was not creamy and missing seasoning. Shrimp pasta was dry, were as the sauce and only few shrimps.... More
