“Overpriced & average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Takes some searching. Don't let the locked front door fool you, the staff will let you in if they see you. Nice atmosphere but way overpriced food. $5 ea oysters from Holland. Had salmon plate which was good & a cod dish that was very bland but that may be the nature of cod. The local fish of day was lion fixed in a beef stew. Deserts nothing to rave about, had strawberry mousse & a layered desert.

ADVICE: in the bar area there are 3 tables along the wall across from the bar. These have a very uncomfortable bench to sit on on the wall side. The bench is not deep enough & the cushion doesn't cover the raised front edge which digs into the bottom of your leg. They really should change these seats.

My suggestion, for the $ try other restaurants. This one isn't worth the $

“WOW! Fantastic says it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

If you're looking for the best fine dining seafood restaurant on Curaçao, this is it. Great selection, extremely fresh, and well prepared. Had the butter baked whole sole and probably the best fish meal I've ever had. If, like me, you love good bread, they have some great home baked white and brown bread with several spreads. Nice selection of wines too.

“Amazing menu filled with creative amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We ended up at Fishalicious because we couldn't get a tale at another restaurant across the street. The girl out front lighting the torches invited us in and I cannot express how happy I am that fate brought me here! Her name is Babette and besides from being an exotic beautiful girl with brown skin and blue yes, she is a great server!

The menu is filled with interesting foods and very unique as well. They bring out a little shot glass and small spoon with a soup in it. cold cucumber with trout and poppy seeds was outstanding and so inventive!

I had the ravioli which was fantastic and my dining partner had the filet with truffle butter and mushrooms. They always bring a bowl of fries which are outstanding as well!

Do NOT miss this if you are in Curacao! We went back 2 nights later it was that good!

“Our Favorite Restaurant In Curacao!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We went to this restaurant on our first night in Curacao as it was recommended to us by the owners of the apartment we were staying at (PM78) and was within walking distance.

The restaurant itself is very small and cute, it is in a traditional old building. We had some great wine, and all of the food we had was really good. We got bread with different spreads and lobster croquettes as appetizers and both were delicious. I had a fish soup for my main course and it was delicious, it had fish, lobster, and shrimp pieces in it. My husband had red snapper, and he said it was the best he has ever had in his life. Although we ate here on our first night and ate at other restaurants during the rest of our stay, this one was our favorite. The prices were decent and the alcohol was very affordable.
