“Great view/atmosphere, but that's all”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

After a full morning of snorkeling at Lagun, we climbed the steep stone stairs to have lunch at Bahia Beach Grill. We were very hungry, but unfortunately we did not enjoy our food. There were four of us and we each ordered a different sandwich. The waitress did not know the menu at all and couldn't answer the very simple questions we had. We figured she was new. I had the Grilled Hawaiian sandwich (Panini with ham, cheese and pineapple), one of my sons had some sort of meat sandwich and the other got a club, husband ordered meatball sandwich. After about 30 minutes, our sandwiches came out with just the sandwiches on the plates - nothing came with them. For the price, we expected fries, chips or something on the side. That in itself wasn't a big deal, but of the four different sandwiches we ordered, none of us enjoyed what we had. I guess lunch is not their specialty, since the other reviews of dinner here are all very good. The large iguanas running around all over the place were fun to watch and feed and the view was to die for, but the food and service left a lot to be desired.

“Great food, great time....memorable”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We went for the famous Thurs night BBQ. We didn't make reservations (be sure to make reservations...they prepare for an expected number of guests). We were lucky, a party cancelled and they fit us in. Peter was a great host, Axel was talented on the grill and gave an enthusiastic blessing...live music was a bonus. Unexpected surprises like watching sea turtles in playa Laguna below, watching a local neighbor taking his horse for a swim, and a surprise practice from the local drum line all made for a once in a lifetime evening. Jerk flavoring and tender meat, tasty ensalade, and full bar offerings made this the meal to beat during our stay on Curacao. And, we met Robert, their scuba instructor....who fit us in the following days. Great beach, great time....take cash, cards weren't accepted..

“Wonderful”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We stay at Lagun so when in Curacao we visit Peter and Thea often. The Bahia Beach Grill has a great outside thatched bar on top of a cliff over looking The Lagoon. There are about 9 or 10 tables along the railing with wonderful views. They have a nice menu that offers different local fish and chicken. Also on Wednesday they have an all you can eat BBQ buffet with live entertainment. The views are spectacular a must see. They also have steps leading down to Playa Lagun with easy access.
