Good local food, but...sanitation?

Ate here a few weeks ago at the food stand in the center. The fried snapper, fried rice, and accompaniments were plentiful and tasty, but ended up with two days of "wow-we" diarrhea. Gotta blame the shared bowls of pika, or the homemade ginger drink I had as the source. Two times eating here... read more

If you want great Curacao food for an affordable price, this is the place to be. Go here for lunch. There are about 6 small kitchens in a covered dining hall, all operated by hard working older ladIes. Try one of the traditional stews (chicken, beef or goat). They are served with rice, greens or baked bananas(plantanes).

This is a very old market, where the local people go for delicious food - the stoba di kabritu (goat stew), sopi yuwana (iguana soup), at yvonne (first counter when you enter) are delicious. You sit at picnic tables, eat off plastic plates, but the food is really good. You can also take out (bigger portions), but we enjoyed sitting... More

We ate lunch at Grasia Di Dios in Plaza Bieu today and it was so good we went back for takeout for dinner and will probably go back again before our trip is over. We had the fantastic fried snapper and felt that John was putting love in the food as well as good flavor. The fresh squeezed lemonade was... More

If you are in curacao and you want to eat genuine local food made to order you have to come here, it is only open for lunch. Is the place where local eats and the food is delicious, anything from Cabrito (goats stew) to Fried red snapper and various chicken plates is worth trying. There are several food stands that...

When on holidays, we always look where the local people prefer to eat. There the table are often plastic, so are the plates…. but the food… wow. At playa Bieu you will find the locals, the tablecloth is plastic and a few kitchen to choose. And the food… I loved it.

Went because of trip advisor reviews and recommendation of a local. First time we went too late and both pumpkin pancakes and snapper were sold out. Went right at noon the second time and got exactly what we wanted. Chose the last counter. Food was good, plentiful and service was good. Local suggested okra soup but we didn't sample. Good...

Had a wonderful lunch of local cuisine. Enjoyed the stewed chicken and hubby had the stewed beef. All food was fantastic and taking in the excitement of the locals hangout was a memorable experience. Recommend to try the lunch scene here if you get a chance.

I went to Plaza Bieu based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. A local told me to only eat at the first and last vendor. I stopped at the first vendor and asked lots of questions. Based on their customer service, I decided to eat at Yvonne's. We sat at her table and looked at the menu. I am a vegeterian... More

I'm a foodie, so I had to eat here. Bless my wife, who tagged along in a supporting role. There are several vendors whose dishes vary, so walk through and check out the menus and see some of the choices before you sit down. My seafood rice had some fish, octopus, conch, shrimp and a variety of other items. Delicious.... More
