When you walk in you see rows of picnic tables covered with plastic table clothes. One of the nice ladies comes to greet you and seat you. Daily menu is simple consisting of about 6 different dishes served with either white rice, rice and beans or polenta. All come with plantains. We ordered the... read more

If you purchase car rental insurance at the airport from Avis, it's $14/day extra. Does not include window damage or tire. You can upgrade to have it covered by paying $19/day. Definitely recommend getting a car if you stay on Curacao. It was safe to drive on the roads and easy to get around once you get a hang of... More

Just had one of the best meals of my life thanks to John in the center booth (gracas mi dios). We had the fish with Tutu. Fish was okay, but the Tutu was divine. John is a great host and makes every meal enjoyable.

This is a true workingman's restaurant: in fact it closes at 3pm. (On this island, the midday meal is the biggest and most important.) It is an enormous hangar of a place, which contains several independent cooking establishments, each serving its own take on local Creole food. I've eaten at 2 of them, both delicious. There is no A/C, just... More

This is the place where to eat the excellent local cuisine! Simple and genuine, Tante Sus is my favorite, but also the other one are very good.

We went to the first booth inside the south door.The lady working there was so sweet and helpful since we didn't quite know how or what to order. She helped pick out what each of us would enjoy and boy did we have a great meal. It was a fun way to enjoy the local cuisine.

My husband and I were so glad we tried this place! Plasa Bieu truly gives you the flavors of Curacao and its people. It's definitely where the locals eat! The food is delicious, plentiful and the prices are reasonable. If you are a "food snob" and want china plates and air-conditioning, this isn't the place for you. As noted by... More

This is not so much one restaurant, it's more a bank of stalls all providing something a little different. This is the locals' cuisine of choice, and there's nothing fancy or pretentious about it. You pick your provider, order, and eat at the picnic table in the open air. It's not white table cloth 5 star dining, but it is... More

Went there after reading Trip Advisor reviews and loved it! We ate at the first 'stall'. Both my husband and I had conch after one of the super nice local people we sat with offered me a sample of his. It was so good! Came with potatoes, fried plantain and rice. It was a huge meal for about $9 US!... More
