We ate lunch in this restaurant as part of a tour. It was expensive and the food nothing special. The highlight of this place is the view.

We were part of a bus trip touring the island. This was the scheduled lunch stop (i.e., we didn't have a choice where we were going to eat). We had a special menu (to supposedly speed up the process). The wait staff meant well, but it took an hour and a half to feed twenty people (we were the only... More

We had dinner here and the first thing I'll tell you is that you'll need a lot a patience to eat here. My god the service is slow. We waited for ages between every course. It was enough to drive anyone mad. Also the restaurant wasn't even busy (it was almost empty) and when we arrived we had to wait... More

We had a great lunch out-there. A little pricy though but nothing to get worried about. Something you should be worried about is the pretty criminal environment you are in. We did get robbed at Watamula during some interesting sightseeing. They took not much but the impact it made on us was pretty frustrated. Also because the local police told... More

We did not stay here (stayed next door at Marazul Dive Resort) but thought a nice dinner would be a good thing to have as a part of the vacation. The service/wait staff were non-existent. Kind and courteous, but simply incompetent. The food was deplorable and it does not take too much to impress me. My 5 year old's chicken... More

We stayed at the Lodge Kura Hulanda on our honeymoon and were extremely impressed by the dedication and brillance of the head chef. One night we asked about the special and he proceeded to prepare for us pan-fried entire lionfish with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. The attention to detail was shocking and the dish was breathtaking. The dinner was... More

About 3 or 4 years ago this was one of our favorite restaurants on Curacao. They had a fried whole snapper that was so good we ate there twice in one week. Since then everytime we go back both the food and the service get worse. At one point they took the fried snapper off the menu, but they would... More

I was staying at the lodge and diving here. I ate just one meal at the hotel and it was awesome. I had the Ostrich fillet, which was prepared island-style and was fantastic. They offer some great desserts too. The atmosphere, service were incredible.I highly recommend this restaurant even if you are not staying at the hotel.

The food was okay--I got the lobster which was overcooked and had a weird sauce on it. My husband really liked his pasta though. the service felt more like being in a Denny's than an upscale restaurant. the dining room almost felt more like the dining room at the last summer camp I worked at. if you are staying at...
