View is pretty, food mediocre, service above average for island

My husband and I ate here on the last night of honeymoon. We got to resturant early so service was good because not a lot of customers. The food was mediocre. The paella is recommended and portions were decent for price. Recommended going during sunset to capture view.

We stayed at the Kura Hulanda hotel and the concierge recommended this restaurant. We made reservations and when we arrived on time they said that they had given our table to a larger party and gave us a couple of high chairs and a cocktail table, after talking to the manager they finally gave us a table. Food was ok,... More

My wife and I ate here on a stop from our Cruise. We ordered a Seafood platter of Salmon, snapper, and Tuna... awesome is an understatement we had Coconut rice grilled veggies and fresh green salad and fresh squeezed lemonade. I am Puerto Rican and used to this food but I noticed the love in the food and the waiter... More

Mt daughter and I ate here on the last night and it was beautiful. We sat near the water. I had the seafood platter and my daughter had conch and sirloin. Good flavorful dishes and considering the seating it was great value. Worth a visit at night when cooler

The restaurant is right in the oceanfront with beautiful views. Great staff that was very helpful, but at times over attentive. Many other restaurants o Are right next door and try to pull you in as you walk by. Perla Del Mar food choices are primarily seafood, though there are many other options as well. The meal presentation was really... More

I read some good reviews so we decided to go. Beautiful view of the ocean. Service was terrible by far the worst experience we had at a restaurant in Curacao. Food came out incorrect. Took forever to get the order in. Waitress was unable to answer many questions. 15% trip already worked in and being a generous tipper that was... More

We had a superb meal when we visited Perla Del Mar. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. It's situated sort of, off the beaten track but well worth going to. Just a 2 min walk detour off the Main Street in Willemstad. Not the cheapest bill we had on our visit to Curaçao but defiantly one of... More

Calamari was amazing and I had the risotto and shrimp in lobster cream sauce, the best meal I had in Curacao! My wife had the pasta primavera she said it was amazing as well!

I'm rating high for location and ambiance. Staff is extremely slow and not very knowledgable sbout their menu. Food is mediocre.

We've eaten here a few times as we like the location, it's right on the sea side. The seafood platter is my friends favorite. We've always found the service decent, a little slow some times but not annoyingly. The complimentary corn breads are excellent.
