Food was really good, there are actually 5 different restaurants there. Menus didn’t have and prices and we paid about $45 for 3 meals. Look at each one before you decide where to eat.

Today, we had lunch at Plasa Bieu. Upon entering, it was a bit misleading because there was one woman at the entrance holding a menu stating that all of the vendors were selling the same food and were part of the same restaurant. This is...More

One small wonder if you love local cuisine. Wherever we went, we tried local cuisine. It says a lot about the fruits, meats, the vegans, spices, environment, and more importantly the people. The dishes were very well prepared, carefully cooked with several ingredients. Goat stew,...More

Willemstad has a lot of great food, but not all of it is traditional. The Old Market - which is currently located in the Ronde Market next door, while the original undergoes renovations - has several small eating establishments serving roti, stobas (stews) and sopi...More

This was a circular market with 2 floors and is close to the floating market. Many locals sell their wares but do not pressure you to buy. If you want to use the bathroom, however, it is on the inside and they will charge you...More

I think they are open. They only serve lunch from 11:00am to 2:00pm though. No dinner service. You can pay in USD but will receive change in Antillean Guilders. Small bills, $20.00, are recommended.
