We gave Tinto a try as we were staying at the Papagayo beach Hotel and really didn't feel like venturing out evenings too often. Dining is outside and the wait staff were very through and efficient. I had the Fillet which was prepared perfectly and was excellent. My wife had a stew which she said was also very good. Overall... More

Even though we were a little too late for our reservation, the friendly staff managed to get us a table despite the great amount of people. We were served excellently and told a lot about the different options of meat. I would highly recommend everyone to taste some of their American imported meat, yet prepared in Argentinian style.

Very nice ambiance at Jan Thiel beach, sitting very close to sea, watching fish by the underwater lights and enjoyed great Argentinian steaks, good fish dishes and nice wines and cocktails. Great place.

We arrived at 5:30 for dinner and were told dinner starts at 6:00. We had drinks and ordered an appetizer and kid's filet. The filet was overcooked and steak fries were an extremely poor attempt at something I've seen frozen fries do better: oily, half cooked, and mealy. The salmon and calamari apps were bad: skin still on the salmon,... More

We sent to Tinto three times during our 12 days stay in Curacao, and we ordered the Tenderloin eatch time. The meat was delicious; smooth and perfect cooked! The french fries was however not that good. We recommend that you chose the massed potatos as a side dish. The grilled corn was also very Nice!

Beautiful area but the food was just ok. Service was good and friendly. My son and his young family were with us ... and there were two young men fishing right from the boardwalk which made us very nervous ... as they were swinging their lines near us. While it is fun to watch these guys fishing and catching fish... More

Portions were very small and thus rather expensive. But, compared to Zest f.e., the prices were reasonable. Smoking is allowed unfortunately. I liked the big steak fries ;-)

We are visiting Curaçao for the third time and went to Tinto for the first time. We sat at the best table overlooking the beach and sunset. The view and food were complimented by our very charming waitress, Stephanie who was very informative about the local cuisine and Curaçao. Thank you Stephanie!

Restaurant was waterside at a beautiful beach. Very difficult to find by car (GPS is a MUST if you rent a car on Curacao). Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Wine was reasonably priced. Food was fresh and well prepared. Appetizer with ceviche 3 ways was excellent. There was live music which was not too loud to preclude conversation. Overall... More
