The only smoke that should be in the patio area should be from the green eggs. Table of smokers nearly ruined the meal.

We stopped in here for lunch at the beginning of March. It is a great spot to sit and people watch or watch the Queen Emma bridge open and close. They have lots of options on the menu and the wait staff is fairly attentive....More

The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great. However the service was only ok. The server was rarely seen and our glasses were empty most of the time.

Excellent view, feel, food and service. Go on a Thursday night and ask for a table outside on the decking/veranda so you can see the fireworks. Thank you for a very romantic evening.

We visited the Museum of Slavery (Kira Hulanda Museum) and wanted to have lunch in the Otrabanda. This restaurant was literally across the street. We sat inside with a partial view of the harbor at Willemstad. The Caribbean chicken salad was excellent.

This is a really good restaurant and if you want the balcony tables, make a reservation days ahead. Many local dishes as well as tried and true. A bit on the pricey side, good service, limited wine list and bad bread. But dinner was good!

The food and atmosphere were top-notch, service mediocre. It took about 15 minutes to be given a menu after being seated and no water until I asked for it at the end of the meal.
