Typical tourist prices. But was a nice place to sit back and enjoy the Curacao views. Service was friendly and quick.

Great prices on drinks during happy hour. The food isn't too bad and the service can be a little slow during the busy time but so nice to sit along the along water and enjoy a cold beverage. Highly recommended!

We dropped in to this harbour side bar after a shopping and touring trip to Willemstad one afternoon. We had taken a shuttle from our Sunscape Resort a short drive to the East. We only had a couple of beers but the view and watching the pontoon bridge open for ships to transit was unique! They have installed "misters" above... More

Lovely spot with an awesome view. Terrific drinks especially the mango smoothie. Very nice servers who do not hurry you along. Sit, relax, take in the views.

Terrible service!!! I ordered a rose wine and a crab salad. I almost got a white wine and they did bring a crab sandwich and the waitress told me that I showed her in the menu. No I did not!!! Never again!! Now instead of serving the waitresses are dancing!!!

Nice view right along the canal and next to the bridge. We had lunch Shrimp and beers. it was good. Server good, lots of pigeons and birds trying to get your food while you eat. A spray keeps you cool.
