Hovering over the water at the end of a short pier, this open-air restaurant is little more than a circular bar surrounded by a ring of dining tables and low-profile sofas nestled dangerously close to the calm water below. Yet two things make this family-run venue remarkable. One is the spectacular setting, with a SoBe feel and unrestricted views of nearby Oranjestad, passing cruise ships, and incoming flights. The other is the fact that they dish up a full menu from the small grill behind the bar -- they prep much of the food off-site, but always grill the crab cakes or marinated, tender steak and shrimp pinchos (skewers) to order. While the salads are uninspiring and the portions are a bit small, the desserts more than make up for it, and the atmosphere is as romantic as it gets.
