Best restaurant experience during our trip

We went to a few restaurants in our 4 day trip to the island and this was the best. While on the pricey side, my fish was very well prepared and tasty, the appetizers were good and the service was excellent. It is a little hard to find the place and we had to drive around and ask exactly where... read more

My husband and I had dinner here as it was within walking distance from the hotel we were staying at (Avila). The restaurant makes a great first impression, the bar is lovely and the decor is very charming. We received impeccable service throughout our meal and the atmosphere was great. We went on a Friday night, so it was busy... More

I had a sort of Tapas starter, of Kibling, or cuts of Cod fish fillets in batter. This came with some home made tartare sauce, delicious. i ordered the steamed... More

Just got through eating here and we are completely disappointed. The wait times here are terrible. Not too many people inside so it was a little surprising that we had to wait so long for everything. The service was some of the worst I had ever experienced. They never refill water and I finally had to ask and waited 15... More

On our second night in Curacao we had dinner at Fishalicious. Very nice ambiance, very friendly and capable staff. The food, however, was a bit of a disappointment. I expected better, given the fairly high prices. I started with the ceviche. While the fish was quite fresh, overall it was lacking something (perhaps a little more acidity?), and the portion...

Expect wonderful service in an intimate setting. The items on the menu were sophisticated and well prepared. The atmosphere was cozy, yet elegant at the same time. The food was exquisitely presented and I highly recommend visiting this restuarant if you are in Curacao.

we read about the restaurant and often it is called 'best fish restaurant of Curacao' to make it short: it can not be. 1. winelist very 'island average' 2. service ok but neither heartily nor really overmotivated 3. food ups and downs. the starter (Kibbelings) were good, including the sauce. the first courses (chevice and shrimps) were ok but no...

lovely decoration in an old Dutch style Villa. The waiter was really nice but the food is over the top. Highly recommended!

I was torn with the rating as I would prefer to give this restaurant something between Average and Very Good. I would more likely say it's Good. The service and ambiance at this restaurant is exceptional...it's quaint, intimate, and romantic. Some aspects of the meal were wonderful...the amuse bouche - a salmon mousse - was the best. There is a... More

Beautiful atmosphere. Very attentive service. Extensive fish menu. Excellent mushroom risotto. Unique dessert menu. The basil pannacotta with sweet tomato jam was surprising and refreshing.
