This is a very reasonably priced area where you can get local food. It is set up with a lot of picnic tables and is open air market style. I would have really enjoyed it except there are a lot of pigeons walking around underneath the tables and that more or less grossed me out.

We had the snapper at the Zus Di Plaza stand. It was so very good! The food is fresh and local. Be sure to get the fresh snapper! Seasoned perfectly and it was so very tasty! This is one market that you MUST go to while in Curacao!

The food here is excellent, irrespective of what stand you visit or how much you want to try. Everything is cooked by people who have years of experience and served to you by people who genuinely seem to love their job. Would definitely recommend this place to anybody looking for something Caribbean!
