We booked the loungebed dinner a couple of days in advance and were advised to have it at 6.30 PM so we would see the sunset - good tip, could even have been there at 6 since the sun sets quickly around 6.45. But we did get great views of it. Nice reception when we came there and good explanation... More

This beach restaurant is not very good. The service is so terrible slow and the food is not really special.

Had dinner a couple weeks ago and it was the biggest mistake of my life. Drinks came late, food came an hour after we ordered and the dessert came after a shocking 45 minutes. Pizza's were cold, crust is thick wich is good but they weren't done yet. Anyway.. gave it a second chance because I was about to start... More

We made the mistake of stopping by Zanzibar on our last night in Curaçao. We were told by the manager about 15/20 min wait. After nearly 30 min... I asked him how much longer & mentioned there were at least 5 or 6 empty tables. He said "no reservation? You have to wait.. I'll get to you when I get... More

We had a very nice meal for dinner so we returned and tried for lunch, but were told "no pizza" served for lunch! Then we waited for a menu and drinks from the one waitress who seemed to ignore us, so we left after 20 minutes.

We went to Jan Thiel beach to do some flyboarding. This is a nice place to eat after flyboarding or hanging on the beach. We had a light lunch. My carpaccio bagette was really good. Convenient place and nice atmosphere!

We stopped with a group of 8 after settling in to our vacation house in Curaçao. We walked Jan Thiel Beach browsing the selection of restaurants, and settled on Zanzibar because of the great tropical vibe and appealing menu. The only downfall of this restaurant was apparent right away- the service is slow. However, every server was very friendly and... More

We attempted this place twice because of the lovely beach bar vibe and location. The first time we just got drinks and snacks. The restaurant was not busy as it was before happy hour and after lunch rush. The waitress took forever to get us a menu, then forever to get our drinks, then forever to take a food order,... More

Came for lunch and the food was hit or miss. The fresh fish was fine but the burgers were not good. Rotating servers so they never seemed to know what was going on at our table. Lots of biting flies too.

We actually came here for drinks - their service left a lot to be desired. The music catered to the young and that was their clientele. That was ok - had a large crowd of people so they probably don't care!
