The original kitchen of Curacao. Large portions, low prices. Very simple accommodation with wooden benches and tables. We are happy to come there. When you walk in, you'll all find stalls on the left side of the building. At these stalls they sell different local...More

Awesome dining option! Locale flavors. Fresh cooked. Authentic. Very fair priced and vegetarian options! Everything we were looking for. Wish we had heard about this sooner in our trip bc up until finding this we’ve been disappointed. Everything else was too “trendy” and not “local/authentic”...More

There are about five eateries on the second floor. With tables. Order as you arrive, wait for food and pay, then take a seat. Everyone is friendly but don’t assume they understand your English! I found someone eating exactly what I wanted, showed the order...More

I didn't go in expecting something wonderful per se, but was told this was a place to go in the afternoon for local food. Unless I missed something, I went to the round market but the upper section seemed closed off? Could have been a...More

The food here is excellent! My gf would eat here everyday if we lived in Curaçao. Every single dish is tasty. Make sure you try the pumpkin pancakes— they are fantastic! Will give this restaurant a 10/10!

It's Curacao Farmers Market. You see all the vendors with local vegetables, fruits and goods. Please go upstairs for some home-cooked local food. It's Marche Benir (I know I am spelling this wrong). It was the only restaurant upstairs. Expect the line to be long...More

It's a long walk but picturesque. You'll need a map.. And if you're coming from a cruise you may find Plasa Bieu a little rustic by contrast. I love it, but it's really tailored to working men..

I think they are open. They only serve lunch from 11:00am to 2:00pm though. No dinner service. You can pay in USD but will receive change in Antillean Guilders. Small bills, $20.00, are recommended.
