This was a lovely dinner. Try the bitterballen! My only complaint is that someone sat at the bar and lit a cigarette while we were eating. This is something I have gotten used to not having to deal with, as it just doesn't happen anymore...More

I am back in Holland, but Karakter is about 20 minute drive from your dock. You will need a car, however, or take a taxi. With limited time I would advise to stay in Willemstad.
