Now this is a story I have to tell you. There is in the town Willemstad a big hall where women cook meals very day. You can sit there on longs tables and choose your meal from a menu that every day changes. You can eat stewed beef and goat but also stewed cucumber with meat and everything tastes very... More

We ate at Gracia di Dios after speaking for awhile with the owner. He was so warm and friendly, and genuinely interested in talking to us. My husband tried the iguana stew, and I had the goat. We never would have tried it if we hadn't spoken with the owner. We also tried pumpkin pancakes at the first and last... More

Nothing pretentious here.....just good local food and flavours!! Tried the kitchen immediately by the entrance. It was the busiest one so we took a chance and they did not disappoint. Family of ten....tried a variety of dishes including goat, fish, soup and pumpkin pancake....everyone gave a thumbs up! If you have the opportunity, speak to a local that you may... More

When you enter the building, stop at the very first station. All stations are separate restaurants. Order "red fish" with rice and peas, potatoes with spinach and you will not be disappointed!

If you want a taste of local food this is the place to be. Try the 'funchi' (polenta) instead of the rice with some goat stew or a freshly baked fish...you will love it!

This place consists of 4 independently owned small restaurants, just like any market in most of Latin America. We went to "La Grasia di Dios" [sic] in the middle, and we loved it. I had "Karko" (prepared conch) and it was delicious, very garlicky. Wife had whole fish of the day, and it was also great. We noticed the place... More

Loved the hectic and local ambiance, if you're into that sort of thing. Great place to try local food. The building is composed of 6 mini "restaurants" with a cafeteria setting. Keep in mind that they are only open during lunch hours -- 11am to 3pm -- so get there early and often.

It is a local out door dining experience. If you want black beans and rice with local seafood, cooked like your mother used to, try this very informal experience. If you want gourmet food, go someplace else. When I am in the States, I judge a restaurant by the number of pick-up trucks. A highway patrol car, an ambulance or... More
