Went here with family in lieu of the cruise ship option. We made reservations, but the restaurant was not crowded on a Thursday night. The courtyard we were seated in was lovely. There were several vegetarian options and everyone agreed the food was great, which should be expected for the prices charged. Drinks were very strong. The service left much... More

We had dinner over here after our inbound flight. Although we were quite tired, this patio garden was relaxing. Waiters were friendly, the food was tasty. The tuna fish a bit salt, somehow. Although I was here for business, this can definitely also be a romantic place.

We had a lovely early anniversary dinner here. Though the porch was full when we arrived, the garden was still nice and the service good. I had a local dish, Keshi Yena, and my husband had a mixed grill. Both were delicious and the portions generous. On Thursday evenings, there are nearby fireworks that you can see from here.

A few of us had dinner here since your cruise ship did not depart until late. We made reservations via email but weren't sure how often they read email requests (frequently, as it turned out) and called as well. They were very gracious about the "spamming." the host suggested courtyard seating as the balcony was a bit windy, and then... More

Great restaurant. Good menu, variety and ambiance. Been there every time I visit Curacao, never disappoints. Something special always on the specials. This time, Lion Fish. Cooked to perfection.

We had dinner there twice during our Curacao visit, once on the balcony and once in the garden. Both locations are great. From the balcony you can see the picturesque well known Curacao Harbor Houses and if you get lucky have a tanker or other large ship pass by through the channel. The balcony can be a bit windy and...

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
