Totally relaxing, great menu with attentive service. A very nice view of Punda and the harbor. Great cocktails and dessert is to die for.

Most people think that the Maritime Museum is only a museum and are not aware of Sails. When we found out, we came here for lunch. There weren't many people in the restaurant at that time, which allowed us to take the balcony seats which have a great view over the harbor. We ordered a few dishes and had to... More

You can get some good food here, if they are not busy, but if busy it can be a really long wait - and then they might not have what you wanted after all

My friend and I stumbled on Sails when we were searching for an air conditioned place to have a bite, a beer and a chance to relax after walking around Willemstad. We did the tourist-things earlier; walked over the swinging bridge, poked around stores, took photos of the colorful buildings, so we were in need of some lunch. We found... More

Only one server and he did a great job. Food was very good and the setting is nice. Not easy to find paring and the attached museum does not offer much. Worth the trip just for the food though. Very reasonable.

Was looking for somewhere special for lunch during our visit to Curaçao and found it when we saw the sign "open for lunch" above the maritime museum near the floating market. The museum is closed on Mondays however Sails is open. Hardly want to share this gem as we were fortunate to find we had exclusive use perfect for us... More

We visited this restaurant recently and picked it because it had great ambiance inside and a nice view from the second floor. We should have known something was up when we didn't see anyone there in the height of the lunch hour. We looked at the menu - which was small but diverse - and we were told that the... More

Are you in for a cozy lunch you better check out Restaurant Sails, located in the Curaçao Maritime Museum. Having a lunch break in a nice ambience is what I do more often do now at Sails. Varying specials, friendly waiters and if you are lucky a great view!

Enjoyed the Maritime Museum and pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant as we reached the second floor. I had a very tasty sandwich on whole grain bun. It had a delightfully crispy crust and had been slightly hollowed out to hold more yummy filling. There are three small tables on the balcony that overlook the floating market and parts of... More

After a mushroom soup, a good and free appetizer,my wife had the tasty Al tonno,pasta with fresh tuna,me,the special of the day:a good chicken but unfortunately served with frozen and too spicy potatoes.
