Great setting in a fort on a very high hill with a view overlooking the floating bridge. The overall experience is like none other, you drive up to this towering fort and then sit in open air with a great view. Wife had Cod and it was amazing, but the steak was a little tough (good flavor but very fatty).

This fort is now considered a fine dining experience. There are a lot of steps to walk and when it's raining it can be hazardous. The view is outstanding. You can see so much of the island. This restaurant is known for the view it affords its customers. The warm bread that they put down before the food arrived was... More

We've been here on several occasions during our vacations in curaçao. Our visit last week was one of our best experiences. The special meals were all excellent and very original on the night of our visit. The soup starter was tasty and original with plantain and cumin.The restaurant was fairly busy with both tourists and locals. Our waiter did a... More

The food at Fort Nassau was absolutely wonderful! I cannot rave about it enough. The service was good and it was the only place in Curacao where I was able to find a New Zealand wine. So why did I give it an average rating? My husband and I went here for lunch and I just couldn't get over the... More

A classy upscale place with unsurpassed views and no smoking! Food is a bit pricey but delicious, almost anything can be made vegetarian, we left stuffed. The views across the island are unobstructed and almost reminded me of the Rainbow Room in NYC. A smoke free environment is a hard find in Curacao, this restaurant is 100% smoke free making... More

Went here for dinner on my birthday. Exceptional service. The view was breathtaking. The food and wine were great. We did the prix fixe (approx US$41.00) and got more food than we could finish (great portions). One caveat: there are many stairs to climb, so (don't be like me) wear sensible shoes. I'm not sure if there is a wheelchair... More

After reading some very positive reviews and heard good things from the hotel reception we decided to give Fort Nasu a go. On arrival the building is fantastic and the view from the restaurant is amazing. We asked for two drinks when we sat down. A caipirinha which was served in a half pint glass with a soft drink straw... More

Located in an old fort, the entrance of the restaurant is impressive. Very nice view over the city of Willemstad from above. Our reservation we made online didn't come through, so might we worth checking. We had a nice dinner and the staff was friendly.

Ate here on a recent trip, and frankly it was on par if not better than many of the higher rated place such as the wine cellar and Baoase Culinary (which both were excellent too). The location is outstanding, the walk through the fort to make your way to the restaurant really sets the ambience. The fact that our table... More
