If you spend time in Curacao you MUST experience the Plaza Bieu. The Plaza Bieu is actually a food court located right across the street from the central bus station in Willemstad Here you experience local food, prepared by local people mainly for local people... The people there are super friendly with tourists and will explain everything there is to... More

The food was so good. We had rice and beans and plantains. I had stewed goat meat and she had chicken. The service is fast and friendly, the prices are great, and the beer is cold. You sit at picnic tables with bright colored tablecloths, and even the dishes are brightly colored. Don't miss this piece of local culture. And... More

We asked the "locals" at our hotel, Marriott Hotel and Emerald Casino, Curacao, where would they go when in town. They told us where to go and we were so glad. We ate at the first "restaurant" in the complex where they make fresh limeaide. We had a full lunch consisting of 3 pieces of chicken, rice and beans, small... More

We are suckers for covered markets. After all, these are the places where the locals eat, where the menus are not adapted to the tourists’ tastes. And so it is with Plasa Bieu. Inside the building you will find several large kitchens with long tables in fort of them. Yvonne’s is the first one you see if you are coming... More

Got a very helpful orientation to the options from a local and had a very nice chicken curry with rice and beans for $5 US, which was the "small" size and I still couldn't eat it all. If you want decent food that will fill you up for not a lot of money, this is the best value I have... More

Good quality price for $20 dollars or less. Everything is prepared by friendly local people and all ingredients are fresh. Fresh fish caught daily and prepared with local touch and spieces. Good ambience where local and tourist meet eat other and eat at joined tables.

We stopped in Curacao during our 8 day Southern Caribbean cruise and made it a point to go to Plaza Bieu and eat at Grasia di Dios for lunch (after reading all of the reviews). The place is definitely no frills. If you are looking for an Anthony Bourdain "No Reservations" type of experience, then this is the place for... More

Take your time and see for yourself what the various kitchens are preparing and make your choice. Be clear on what you want/ on what you expect. If the meal was to small let them know and in my experience you will get some more. Relax and enjoy!
