Go to Yvonne's for excellent local dishes!

This place was awesome! There are multiple little eateries that serve lunch (only lunch so go at the right time!) inside a big open air warehouse-type building. Yvonne's is the place that's packed. You can't miss it. She offers local dishes like cactus soup and stewed goat, beef, and chicken. I had... read more

Wonderful way to eat with and like the locals. There are a variety of options. The servers/cooks can help you in English, Spanish, Dutch etc. The food it tasty, huge portions and prepared like you'd expect a Curaçao mother or grandmother would for her family and friends. Overall a plus++

My husband and I are originally from the Caribbean and we got very excited when we discovered this place in Curacao. We ordered a variety of things (seafood, chicken, rice, curried goat) from two of the food stalls and everything tasted awesome. The portion sizes are big. I appreciated that the cooks were willing to make our food extra spicy.... More

A must visit when in Punda, simply to have a peak at local food: the atmosphere, the preparation and the locals eating! (Oh, right: and the tourists of course) Tip: sit next at the back, where there's some wind, or you might be eaten alive by mosquitos.

Plasa Bieu is a great place if you want to have the local lunch experience for best price/value mix. We had lunch twice with our teenage kids. You can try various foodstalls. You sit at long tables, unairco-ed and it's not fine dining. The stall keepers will help you and advise you in dutch or english. Great experience

This in the old market. It look like abig cafeteria and it's where the locals eat traditional curaçao food. For 20$ we had two huge plates of food and a couple of beers. The atmosphere was loud and fantastic. Just like your grandmas home cooking. Everyone should make a trip there.

There are 5 or 6 vendors cooking local dishes in the Plaza Bieu. You sit at picnic tables marked by the color of the table cloths to each vendor and there are waitresses that will take your order and serve you. We ate at Ivonne's and had the fish filet with rice and peas. It was delicious and a large... More
