Based on the positive reviews, we were looking forward to enjoying lunch at the Old Market but had difficulty finding it as the usual location is under renovation and vendors have temporarily relocated to the top floor in the "Round Market" by the bus station....More

Sadly they close too early (for what I am used to) but nice flavors. They are currently under remodeling so they moved to the round market. Good attention. Moderate prices

I had big plans on eating at Plaza Bieu but unfortunately it was closed down during my trip. When I go back I will definitely check it out.

Plaza Bieu is an iconic part of punda. A variety of local dishes are on offer and it can get quite busy during the lunch break. Try the stoba, funchi, fish dishes and goat.

Fantastic local cuisine, cooked by the local people for reasonable prices. It is open only for lunch, till 3 pm. Try the cactus soup, pumpkin pancake, or the iguana soup!

This open marketplace/cafe is a bit confusing at first, but if you sit down at a picnic table where space is available (and don't be surprised if you are joined by strangers) the waitresses are helpful, if a bit harried. Good fish, paella, etc. There's...More

My wife and I ate lunch at Plasa Bieu while on vacation in Curacao. One of the most flavorful, fresh meals we had while in Curacao. Definitely something every visitor needs to experience.

We were in the mood for local food, and Plaza Bieu was recommended by the hotel staff. This is near the floating bridge, and in a part of town that seems to be local hangout during the day. First of all, all of the food...More

It's a long walk but picturesque. You'll need a map.. And if you're coming from a cruise you may find Plasa Bieu a little rustic by contrast. I love it, but it's really tailored to working men..

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.
