A collection of 9 market stalls that serve very well priced food. Don't be put off by the rough and ready look of the place, the tables are covered in oil cloth, and offer communal dining, but the food is great. If you are not sure what the local dishes, mainly stew type food, taste like ask for s spoonfull... More

This is the real thing, a must stop for foodies. We took a look around and got a wonderful plate of food at Zus's. I had a fish stew with brown rice and beans, baked banana and salad. Pumpkin pancake for dessert was delicious too. There are no vegetarian items on the menu, but the cook was more than happy... More

This is the place to go if you want to eat what the island people eat. Some of it didn't sound too good but I tried it all and it was really good. They were helpful in making suggestions:)

The best restaurant on the Island for poor and rich people. You can find all kinds of exotic food and the portions are huge. If you are hungry, this is the right place to eat. Most importantly, the staff is typical local people, they know about Curacao cuisine and are very friendly. You will pay less here for a good... More

As above - this is the locals eatery and is a very large semi-open eatery/very local Restuarant - see photo. Most plates are around $9:00 US and are very large portions - you could think about sharing a plate and if still hungry then order more if you so wish. Goat, Beef, Red Snapper and many other local dishes are... More

As a picky eater, let's just say I tried. I ordered Cucumber stew and have no idea what I actually ate, while my husband had goat stew and enjoyed it. There was a water cooler right next to us, so easy access to water. Our server was pleasant. I felt as though we went more for the experience than the... More

A market hall in Curacao which hosts 4 local restaurants with local food. We were quite late so three of tjem were closed. A written menu, we had soup, pumkin caked and drinks. The soup was totally slimy but it was supposed to be that way. The cakes were great. The lady cooking/of the service was really funny and nice... More

Plaza Bieu is located near the floating market. Directly across the street from the Old Market (flea market). It is a large covered building that houses several local food venders (street food)! Keep in mind, these are locals and this is where the local workers eat. Menu is in Spanish and the food is stewing in large commercial pots. I... More
