We are New Yorkers by birth and of Latino heritage. We were looking for some authentic local cooking and we found it in El Fogon. El Fogon is located away from the usual tourist haunts, but not difficult to get to. A cab ride from most of the hotels is not too expensive and not too hard to find if you are driving and are a little adventuresome. The food is great, down home family style cooking. No fancy decor or menus and you will be dining with the locals for added flavor.

We stopped twice for lunch
First time we both had the chicken in mushroom sauce special for $10 and it was very good & good service
The second time we had pork chop & chicken, both were good again, but the same young girl who servered us the first time gave us the island time attitude. The only reason I still gave good rating is that the older lady (owner maybe) came out from back and helped

We ordered a fish and a chicken dinner, both were delicious and we had enough left over for another meal. Great little place

You won't be disappointed. This is a much better value for mixed grill for the carnivores in your group. Go for the food.

There's nothing fancy about this place and that's what I like. Two people can order mixed grills (it's for 1 instead of 2-3 like at Casablanca) and it won't cost anywhere near as much. And it's just as good.

However most people will visit the usual restaurants in Kralendijk, simply do not skip El Fogon Latina. However it is very simple and small, a bit hard to find and out of the city centre, we really liked it because of its simplicity and tasteful meals. Do not expect glamour but basic meals along with Polar beer!
