We had lunch with the family at Plaza Bieu. That day we had a choice out of 4 different operators/owners, all of them have tables inside Plaza Bieu. We choose one of them and we enjoyed the food he offered. The other 3 owners were busy as well and the selection of food they offered looked good as well. An... More

While on a short trip to Curacao my boyfriend and I were dying to try some local food. After asking a few people, we got the same answer every time telling us to come here. We are extremely glad we took the time to find this little gem that locals recommended. There is no A.C. but that didn't really bother... More

If you want that visit out of the country feeling, this place is it. This is where the locals eat for lunch during the week. I like exploring different cultures and this place had great variety. Inside is are several restaurants and have a few differences in between each of them. Get a little better idea by walking past the... More

It is truly a local food at its best. Go have lunch there. There are only few places on the islands where you could really feel the authenticity of the food and the culture. It is mostly populated with the locals despite the food been quite pricey. That should serve as the bast advertising by itself.

Locals and tourists flock here everyday for lunch. Most spots fill up by 11 or so and they close when they sell out. Get there early if you want to eat inside the building. No air conditioning but the staff is friendly and the food is great. You won't be disappointed. Ask anyone where to get the best food downtown... More

This is the place to try real local food in Willemstad. They open at 8 and we were able to have meat soup for breakfast here one day. Best time to go here, however, is for lunch between 12 and 2 pm. They have different menus for every day of the week, several traditional dishes, both fish, meat, pancakes and... More

My husband ordered and had a fish dish. He enjoyed it. However, he ordered rice and instead got something else on the side. They offered to switch it but he declined politely. We sat eating for an hour. It was hot and a bit smelly for my liking but I appreciated the cultural experience. We made friends too which was... More
