We stayed at the Avila right down the road. This restaurant was perfect - no reservations needed. Their outdoor seating made you feel like you were dining in your backyard garden. The service and good was so good we ate there twice! I️ highly recommend...this restaurant!More

The vibe and decor of this place was really nice, there is plenty of seating here. The menu and food was OK. The red dragon noodles were not my favorite. The desserts were better then the entres. It's one of the few restaurants in the...area open on Sundays.More

So Much Flavour!! We shared the Funchi hasa which was perfect to share and my Wife had the Galina Di Smor and I had the Satay Krioyo. The stew was savoury and warm and the Chicken Satay was so perfectly done - tender and a...big flavour. There were many nice elements on the plate with sweet, tangy and fresh dressings. The Pinot Grigio was flowing throughout the meal! Great staff - will definitely be back!More

Great outdoor atmosphere, the service was wonderful and the food was amazing. Our favorites were the Polenta appetizer and the Seabasket. I would highly recommend this place!

Everything from the staff to the service to the cocktails to the food was unbelievable! The best part was that they don’t take reservations so we never had any difficulties getting a table right away. Try the Sashimi appetizer and the Blue Rozendaels drink for...a true taste of the island! Outdoor dining at its finest!More

We had a great dinner at Rozendales and loved the ambiance of the all-outdoor location, which benefits from a welcomed breeze. They do not accept reservations, though we had no problem being seated when we arrived around 7:30pm on a Sunday (a relief considering that...many nearby restaurants are closed on Sunday). We started with the sticky rice with pulled chicken and peanut sauce, which was delicious, and one other appetizer that I am forgetting but have no doubt it was good 😉. We got the Steak Au Poivre and Caesar Pasta for dinner, which were both excellent and cooked perfectly. There was a great selection of coffee drinks and sweets for dessert (apple crumble and brownie we great!). We would have eaten at Rozendales again if we were on Curacao for longer – highly recommend.More

Delicious meal in a large open air courtyard. Had our first funchi fries (fried polenta) and they were the best of the week. Easy walk from our hotel and located with other equally excellent restaurants

This was our first visit to this hotel. It is absolutely a hidden gem and I only wish we discovered it earlier. Service was top notch and the outdoor seating area was very pretty and relaxing. Our food was first class and the cost for...our meal and beverages was more than fair. Definitely recommend checking out this fantastic restaurant. Perfect for a special meal.More

The food in this very clean mostly open air restaurant was excellent, I had 8 meals there during my stay and everyone was a winner. The meat was always tender and succulent, the cheese boards were superb. The host was very friendly and the service...was excellent. As an English lady I went there 3 times on my own and never felt awkward and was served just as well as when I visited with a Dutch friend. Visit Curacao - visit Rozendaels it is a must.More

in our 3 week vacation we went to Roezendaels 5 times, that kinda says it all. Service was very friendly and fast, the food is oustanding, the menu is not too big but has something for every taste. We especially liked the 'authentic cuisine', but...the tenderloin and really everything else was fabulous, too. The owner is a true original, very friendly, funny, attentive and curteous, as was the entire staff. Never had a problem getting a table, either because they keep plenty tables free for walk ins, where at most other spots a reservation was needed. The prices are very fair in comparison to other places like this. Would definitely recommend it!More

We ate here twice on our recent trip to Curacao, choosing to go back on our last night because we enjoyed it so much. The atmosphere on the terrace was great. The service was absolutely first class and the food tasty, without being pretentious. The...main building is Art Deco, only built relatively late for such a style in the 1940s. For main courses we tried tuna steak, large prawns cooking in a creamy sauce and mixed snapper and shrimp. First courses included raw tuna, prawns grilled with garlic and pulled chicken wrapped in sticky rise. Unlike many of the nearby restaurants they don't overcharge for their wine, so I felt the meal offer good value for money.More

We had a great evening at this very beautiful restaurant. A reservation by whatsapp worked well. Quick and friendly. A warm welcome upon arrival. Nice table with view into the artful open air area. The location of the restaurant is so nice. Elegant and relaxing...at the same time. Cosy lights under each palm tree. Nice music. Impressive was the professional and friendly service. The nice waitress really knew what she is doing. Knowledge about wine and beer. Had the TUNA CRUDO and PAN CON AJO (fresh baked bread) as starter and GAMBAS AL PIL PIL + REEF & BEEF as main course. It was simply WOW! Soooo delicious. All together in the top 5 of restaurants we’ve ever been to. BE SURE: We come back again!More
