At the very west end of Curacao you don't really expect to get food like this: fresh and tasty fish, steaks perfectly grilled and a perfect barbecue. Be sure to ask for the "catch of the day" if you like fresh fish!! On some days you can have events like live music or an "all-you-can-eat" menue.

After a late afternoon snorkel at Playa Lagun in March, we popped into Discover Diving Restaurant (right across from the beach) in the hopes of getting ribs to go. We had done this on a trip to the same area of Curacao in March of 2014, and loved the ribs then. Even though we were there on a buffet type... More

Try the fish--the ribs were tasty but very chewy. The setting is great--close to the beach--feel and looks like a sea-side restaurant. Very good service, both the restaurant and bathroom are clean.

We stumbled upon this little place and were very pleased with the service and food. Our server was extremely personable, and funny, also a dive instructor for the sister company. Fresh seafood options on the grill smell great and are the way to go. Cocktails and wine also available, all fairly priced.

We really enjoyed the experience at this restaurant. The food was good, especially the sea food that they grilled by the side of the open concept eating area and the informal nature of the cook and the server that was there. We got up and had a nice chat with the cook as he grilled the fish that we ordered.... More

We stayed at the Lagoon Ocean resort one bedroom. This place is walking distance from the resort. We ordered take out ribs and they were very tender and tasty. The chef was very accommodating cooking for us considering they were about to close. Not open everyday, so try to take advantage of the days they are open. The prices were... More

Its the restaurant associated with the dive shop at Playa Lagun. (Well, to be precise, its across the parking lot from Playa Lagun) The chef is surprisingly good (and accommodating) - and does surprisingly good fish specials (which are what you basically get - whatever they brought in that day, is whats being cooked). The bitterballen, however, are *great* -... More

Its part of the dive shop that is next to the parking lot of Lagun beach. It has a lot of options in the menu to choose from apart from the daily speciality. Apart from this they do a fish BBQ I believe on Wednesdays (a must) and also a meat BBQ on Saturdays from 5-8pm Would check it out... More
