So nice we had it TWICE!

So we were in CUR for a wedding anniversary with friends (9 people). Upon the recommendation of a local we drove 45 minutes into town for dinner here and we were so glad we did. Two days later we had to return. I have never eaten at the same place twice in as many days and especially visiting a... read more

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here. The food was fantastic and the service was by far the best we found in 8 days on the island, we wish we would have found this restaurant earlier in our trip, as we would definitely go back.

We were in Willemstad for 4 nights, and had great meals everywhere. However, Perla Del Mar was over the top by far! Excellent service, food, and wine, and the MOST SPECTACULAR view of the ocean waves crashing on the rocks right below the balcony where we were seated. Next time we visit Curacao, Perla Del Mar will be a MUST!

We made a last minute reservation through our hotel and got a table outside right be the water. We both had seafood that was delicious and well presented. We were not in a hurry, so appreciated the service, which was attentive, but not pushy. Reading some other reviews, they had to wait for the check, but ours came when I... More

The food was tasty and looked nice, but the long waiting (1 hour) just took down the experience. Compared to other restaurants that we visited the prices here are high.

We had a very nice meal here. It's in a bit of a restaurant row with a felling of a food court as you enter the area. We had a outside table away from the water so we didn't get the full effect of eating where the water was splashing on the rocks below. The good was good but very... More

I went here with a friend...we decided to go out for dinner on the spur of the moment and we gambled they would be able to take us. As luck would have it, they were able to seat us immediately, inside, by the window so that we could watch (and hear) the ocean. The seafood casserole was wonderful. The service... More

Stumbled upon this just walking around and we were stunned to see how an old fort had been repurposed. Nothing but great restaurants with so many different cuisines and all with killer views

We had a great dinner at this restaurant, the view is amazing - we asked for a table by the water - the waves were slashing the rocks by our side. The food was outstanding: lobster cream is one of the best I've ever had, fried calamari was very tasty. For main course I had a whole red snapper, they... More
