Fort Nassau is situated on a hill above Punda. It is probably the place that offers the best view of the Schottegat area, as you can see both Punda and Otrobanda, but also the refinery and the Queen Juliana Bridge from here. It's a beautiful historic building with garden and a restaurant that also has vegan options, albeit quite pricey.

I liked the view over Willemstad from the restaurant. The food was average but okay. But the staff was not pleasant. Only 4 tables were booked and still we had to wait long times for service. Staff looked like they did not care about the customers.

nice location and good food around, strange that a building/house from a person who was high in slave trade is still standing in this island..

We took the Willemstad by NIghts tour and they took us to the roof top of Fort Nassau. Great panoramic of Willemstad at night.

Great location. Beautiful restaurant. Very romantic. Easy to find. the bridge was incredible and no tolls. If this was New York you would be paying $25 to cross this bridge. Thank you Netherlands for paying for this bridge.
