My mother was a "jiu di Korsow" who moved to Aruba and beyond after marriage to my father - a native Aruban..... years ago. We grew up with this food and it was wonderful to find someplace I could relive the flavors of my past. The giambo was excellent! The funchi with it was a great treat. My husband (who... More

As a picky eater, i was a little concerned about trying food here, however after eating in the Plaza Bieu (old Market) I realized I didn't need to worry. The food was great, there was some things that I did not like. But I did find quite a bit that I liked and even went back 2 times during my... More

The old market is a place where you must eat in Curacao. I’ve sampled a lot of the food here and it’s all fantastic. I’ve had the chicken, goat, beef and oxtail and I love all of it. I’ve been to Curacao twice and I’ve eaten here every time. Make sure you get the funchi as a side. You get... More

After reading many reviews stating that this place filled up quickly and would close, I got there a little early (11:30AM EST) for lunch. Since it was pretty much empty I waited until noon before I went in. Only about 1/2 of the food locations were open and I selected "Yvonne's". I had the stewed goat with rice and beans... More

This place is ideal to try the local cuisine, stewed beef, rice, mashed potatoes, fried fish and soo on. The food is displayed in huge pot and pans. And the serving portions were BIG, it is nearly impossible to finish a plate. The plaza itself was a bit hot though but after the ice cold lemonade (which was really good... More

An absolute must for local cuisine! Different vendors offering local food options. Go to the tall, skinny, guy in the middle of the food hall! (Wish I remembered his name). He is very friendly and the food was delicious. I actually came back a second time. Won't set you back more the $10 for a full meal. There is a... More

This is what you should visit if you want to experience the local touch. There are 5 kitchens each with there own specialties. Be in time at lunchtime or they are sold out? Just want a snack: take the back entrance and order those delicious finger-licking pumpkin pancakes! Good price.

Local food plaza with generous portion. We had lamb stew and fried fish and both were yummy. Also took pancakes to go for breakfast. Must try.

Enjoyed the lunch here, good price and seeing the Island Culture is well worth the visit. Parking can be difficult, but we were lucky arriving at 11:30. Service is better that many other local areas.

Criollo means local and that`s what you get at this mid town marketplace. Get a cultural experience by visiting Marshes View and enjoy good local food at very reasonable prices. Enjoy !!!
