We had two Meals here this year Meal 1: For dinner we stayed local and ate at playa forte restaurant. We started off with ceviche which was awesome tuna chunks with mango and other stuff mixed in. Then for dinner Mrs PSM had “on the...bone” Mahi steak which was two large pieces of fish with a small salad, plantain and fried green banana side dish. I had red snapper filleted that was very lightly pan fried with red beans and rice. Well we were thoroughly impressed, it was one of our best meals in westpunt and all for under $70 US. Meal 2: Following our pool time at Marazul we planned on going to playa forte restaurant to have ceviche and desert. We loved the ceviche the last time we were there and it seamed like following a full dinner we never had space for desert so the idea of having an appetizer and desert would solve our problem. Wrong, the restaurant is primarily a lunch place and was out of ceviche, bummer! Well we ended up having grilled conch and and shrimp with mango enchilada sauce both were good but we could not help being disappointed. We like the staff at playa forte, Sandra, Yonna and Simmone are very personable and nice even if there is a little language barrier. As we were leaving Mrs PSM was telling Sandra how much we enjoyed being there while she was making a passion fruit daiquiri for someone. As it turned out the blender had half a glass of extra that was gifted to Mrs PSM. All in all quite a nice dinning experience. PSMMore

The view is incredible! The food and service were awesome. My favorite item on the menu was the Keshi Jena with plantains as the side. Note that this restaurant can get very busy later in the week and on weekends. Reservations can be made via...email. Request a table near the balcony.More

Me and my friend frequently visit Playa Forti Restaurant mostly during the weekend on sundays. It is often their busiest day of the week and the athmosphere is almost imposibble to describe. The service is top notch, the food is amazing and the view is...just priceless. It's the perfect place to sit down and relax and zen out. It helps me prepared for the tough week ahead and make me wish for the next weekend the arrive as soon as possible. If you are on the island please make sure you come by.More

This place just reinforces the idea of Curacao: blue skies, azul seas, ocean breeze... a GREAT place to have a beer and watch the people and ocean around you. The service was friendly and the place was bustlin' with customers, cliff jumpers, and the very...chill staff. when we were there. Unfortunately., the food was awful. We ordered burgers and pesto pasta. The burger was PACKEd with filler, not meat-- tasted more like a corn meal meatloaf than a great burger, and the soggy, over-salted pesto pasta was not great. Clearly, this great spot cycles customers through, and the focus is not food, but the amazing view and atmosphere.More

We came here to escape the afternoon heat with our 6 month year old daughter after having swam with the turtles at Playa Piskado. The staff we're very welcoming and extremely helpful. The views are out of this world and the food was delicious -...my wife said it was the best chicken satay she had ever had. This is a little hidden gem and I would highly recommend it to anyone.More

A must visit place in Curaçao. Fantastic food and a million dollar view. We lived in Curaçao and have been to the restaurant multiple times. We were never disappointed. Their food is an outstanding example of local food, fresh fish, fresh produce, traditional spices. The...service and management were wonderful, accommodating and went above and beyond even helping us overcome a payment issue that was generated during this visit by a power outage. The location of this restaurant is unique! On a cliff top with beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea, wildlife and the frequent diver that jumps from their tip of the cliff. In short, awesome food, service and location. Try the Lion fish, the kabritu stobá (stewed goat) with funchi (a local version of polenta) and you’ll be amazed!! Can’t wait to be back!!More

While the food and service are good, this is a must destination for the views and cliff diving. The vibe screams vacation and “I am away.” My brother in law had the lion fish and I had the conch with onions and bell peppers—both recommended....I would skip the chicken skewer as it’s fried and was a bit overcooked. Overall, this is a must if you are in the area, and it’s worth going out of your way for.More
