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

The plaza seemed modest but the food was absolutely delicious! We just went there when it seemed to be about to be closed and got our randomly picked fish dishes really quick. My wife told that it was the best meal so far she's had on the island and I must agree. The portion size was also sufficient and we... More

This is maybe the most representative place for local food. It´s placed at a popular market. It´s really big, but always crowded. Tables are for 6-8 people, and you have to share the table with anyone else to keep them full. Tables are not too clean. Flavors are great and you feel tasting a really homemade food. Portions are huge.

A great spot that tourists and locals come together for some great home cooked food. If you are not an adventurous eater, you may not like the menu options since it is very eccentric like pig tails and goat meat, but none the less a great taste of Curacao food. There are about 6 vendors set up with picnic tables... More
