Definitely recommended.

We were a group of 10, so we ofcourse had to wait quite a while. But the food was definitely worth the wait. I had shrimps, they were fresh and very tasty. The food is also very filling. And they have friendly staff and a beautiful view on the beach.

Good food, service is slightly on the slower side, but it's island time! Eat to the sound of the crashing waves. Doesn't get better than this.

Although it is situated on the same district as Scambi, and has the same romantic environment, the guys who run this restaurant they do not know anything about cooking. The Argentinian Steak I order it was cooked harder than the sole of your show. I just left it on my plate- Well nobody came to ask me if I am... More

You must have dinner here just prior to sunset so you can have the benefit of seeing the waves crash into the rocks before it becomes dark. The seating is out on the deck and if you sit just at the railing it seems as if each crashing wave will splash you...but it does not and just rushes under the... More

We went to Perla del Mar and had a wonderful time. The service was excellent and the food, simply amazing. We ate oysters, squid, calamari and all sorts of seafood. Try a table close to the ocean. The view is breathtaking!

Service was friendly and quick. It was our only dining stop on the island where I'd say the service was quick and efficient. The seafood options were very good (whole snapper and mahi mahi). The pasta options were merely okay. Right on the water. It seems like the spray from the surf hitting the rocks stops just short of the... More

We had looked forward to eating here, but we were disappointed in the results. While the location is fabulous, the service needs serious help. No one seemed to know who was supposed to take care of our table. We had one waiter taking our drinks order, another coming to see if we wanted to order dinner, another asking to take... More

Perla del Mar is next to the ocean. We got a very nice seat literally over the water, and you can sometimes get some splashes from the rocks next to us. Even though we had a reservation, it took some time to get us seated. They had 2 very large parties outside, and they were definitely having trouble keeping up... More

We ate here on our last night in Curacao. It was a Monday night and we did not need reservations and were able to sit by the water to watch the sunset over the ocean. Most of the wait staff speaks English but a few don't. We ordered seafood casserole which is not really what we would call a casserole... More
