We visited The Pier last Saturday. Firstly there was sufficient parking space and a security watched the cars. The outside deco is already very nice! Coming to the inside it feels like stylish place created with good taste - simple, maritime, island like. The servant was super friendly, up to speed and welcoming. The wine recommendation by the waitress was... More

A bit more upscale than Pirate's Nest although next door and same view. Went twice. Had the fish which was amazing but don't bother with the tenderloin. It wasn't grilled, it looked and tasted boiled. Butch everything lease we had was outstanding.

We were able to book a reservation with waterfront views. Service was top notch and the food was delicious. They bring menus written on a large chalkboard which was different and cool. Hanging tender special was amazing!!!

Diner at The Pier was a real treat. We had the Tuna with noodles ...really great Tuna and exactly prepared as ordered. Location is very nice at a Marina. Prices are very reasonable and this made the diner really value for money. Will definately return later this werk to try another dish.

The restaurant overlooks the Spanish Water bay. The terrace is located on a harbor jetty. When we had dinner there someone had spilled Diesel fuel with fumes coming up through the scaffolding planks. The main course (Tuna steak on top of Thai noodles) was getting a bit cold on the outside when it arrived at the table. The home made... More

Nice place, good food, views to the Spanish waters. Nice service even fast when compared to other restaurants at curaçao. Pumping soup is spicy and tasty and the desserts apple crumbles, and chocolate cake where excellent. Also the shrimp pasta was good. When early dinner also nice for children, they have special list also for children.
