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 !!!

Authentic and local good food for a reasonable price. Atmosphere is a bit shabby but at the same time it feels good to see locals and tourists next to each other, having a good time.

If you visit Willemstad go to this place. We had the beef with white rice and salad. Great flavors. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. Don't let the atmosphere scare you. You don't have a table all to yourself. You mix with the local people and enjoy lunch together. Food is extremely fresh.

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
