“The best restaurant in Curacao!!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is one of the BEST dinner we have ever had. If you want to have a great night out feeling away from the ordinary, believe me this is the best way to do it. From the parking lot you'll see that you are not an average restaurant. Once you get inside you can easily feel away from home. The salad bar is great, service is awesome and the meat is superb!!! This is a restaurant I would definitely recommend. Money well spend!

“Oh yes!!!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

If you are a meat lover, you're going to like it. Great taste and great service.
The only thing missing is entertainment. Like a band or music.

Great service, great meat, great design, GREAT staff. Bit pricy though. We paid 450 NAF for 3 persons including 45 NAF service charge which wasn't tip. But we had a great night out, so we actually didn't care.
The salad bar is amazing and huge.

“Brazilian meat - "Gostoso!"”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

The meat is delicious! They have very good quality meat. The rice and beans also taste like how they make it in Brazil. (I know, because I’m Brazilian myself.) The ambiance is very beautiful and the employees are very friendly.
There are some little things for improvements:
- the pushing chauffeur of the (free) shuttle bus, who wanted to pick up us after just one hour,
- the secretary for the reservations forgot to tell us, that if you come by shuttle bus, your time at the ‘rodízio’ is 2h instead of 3h and that they don’t serve all kind of meat every day.

I think L’aldea is a little bit to expensive, but for return you get a unique experience with delicious Brazilian food!

“Expense meal, great salad bar, awful meat.”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

This restaurant was highly recommended. There were only two tables, Slad bar was extensive and the mushroom soup was the best part of the meal. They bring meat after meat, but they are tough, and raw!! They had no side dishes such as vegetables, in the end all that was edible was the salad bar. Was really expensive, they do provide a free shuttle to pick up/drop you off, but I found most restaurants do this.
I would definetly avoid this place.
