If you're in downtown Curacao during the lunch hours, and if you are looking for an inexpensive meal then you will find nothing better than the incredible value that's offered under the open air roofed Plaza Bieu. T This is the spot where both local office, retailers and laborers eat their lunch. Plaza Bieu has huge volume of customers day... More

You're in the trenches here with the locals, but if you want a real feel of how life is on the island and what true Curacao food is like, this is where to come! We ate at Zus di Plaza, and it was amazing! My wife had a full Red Snapper off the frill with the local fixings and I... More

One of my best meals on the island! It's a food market, with various vendors touting their meals. It's a communal experience, with everyone sharing long tables & benches. It's a bit hot & dusty, so dress appropriately. This is NOT fine dining. We chose our meals from a gentleman a couple of stalls in......I had a whole red snapper... More

We arrived quite early, just before midday so the plaza was reasonably quiet and we had time to walk up and down to check out the variety of options. At each stall, the staff are touting for your attention but don't feel pressured. Take your time and ask them what's on offer. I was concerned that there might not be... More

It is like a market, a very simple place to have lunch, with simple food, but nice local people. It is a worthy experience. The food is good (I loved the fried banana and the tamarindo juice) and very cheap. I recommend the last restaurant at left.

A really neat place serving local food. It was a little confusing as to how ordering food worked. Most places did not have a menu. Grasia di Dios was the only place with an English menu so we decided to try the food there. The taxi driver also recommended Yvonne's place but we had difficulty trying to figure out what... More

Plaza Bieu food was delicious and inexpensive; however DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT look around or you may not be able to eat. The place is old, it is hot and humid, it looks very dirty, and like there was a fire. You have to ignore a lot to enjoy the food. The service was decent and we... More

Local cooks all under one roof, you can go in and choose what you would like to eat and who will cook it. I enjoyed the 1 experience I had at Plaza Bieu.

My husband and I had our worst meal of the week here. The service was bizarre, to say the least. There was no water, only soda, and the menu changed every few minutes so we did not get what we ordered but still had to pay the same price. My husband ordered fish that came with brown rice, plantains, and... More
