I booked a reservation for a table with a harbor view at Gouverneur de Rouville about two weeks in advance after reading reviews here. Despite being jittery about bugs, I don't think I received any bug bites here despite a two-hour dinner on the patio that started about 6pm. The length of the dinner wasn't really our choice. We started... More

Make your reservation on time , ask for harbour view not for garden view which is also nice but not have the wow factor. Sitting outside on the balcony wathing to world passing by...nice breeze, Amstel bright and good food what more do you need ? Nice for a visit. Make your reservation before arrival to avoid full house.

We visited this restaurant located next to the ferry twice , in the evening and for late lunch. Delicious fresh tuna sashimi quality, meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce and generous children's portions of food made our day ) Service and cocktails delicious as well. It's not very cheap but it's Curacao and location of the restaurant. Good value for... More

Lovely setting in a beautiful building. The service was nominal from the waitress, there was a manager who seemed to be picking up the slack. The food was okay but not great.

This place reminds me of an old style steak house really good food but perhaps a bit outdated however we sat on the balcony so we had a view of the harbour entrance great place for a meal watching the harbour traffic no complaints about service or food

Good service and nice interior.Different options on the menu even local dishes you can choose. I had tuna burger which was excellent. Also by recommendation of my server I had their craft beer which was also very good. It might a bit pricy compare to other restaurants but they have beautiful terrace and garden. Highly recommend it.

Made reservation and was told they were full, but i could sit at the bar if no table free Upon arrival we got a table in the garden, we arrived at... More

This restaurant was recommended for the view from the balcony and the location did not disappoint. The view across the waterfront was perfect and the floating bridge opened and closed multiple times. With the 6 pm seating, we were able to see the bridge during daylight and evening with the lights- so well worth it. Also interesting to see the... More

We had dinner here while touring the waterfront of Willemstad. It's a lovely location, staff were very helpful and the food was excellent. We had a fish platter (tuna, shrimp, etc). The fish is smoked at the restaurant on a green egg, and was very nice.
