Where To Eat Curacao

For great steak, fish and special ambiance near by I recommend four restaurants: Kyoto, Zest & Tinto, Villa Vis and Pops place..
Kyoto is a Japanese restaurant adjacent to Van den Tweel Supermarket near the entrance of Boca Gentil Resort. Zest and Tinto are  on walking distance from the villa and are situated next to Zanzibar. Zest Offers Meditaranian food and Tinto offers Argentinian steaks, but has also fish and chicken on the menu. The ambiance at Tinto is created with flames and candle lights. Zest has also a beach Grill section, where you sit and eat on the beach. Many of our guests rank these three as one of the best in the area.  Telephone Zest: +5999-747-0633. 

Villa Vis  and Pops place are what farther away at the last roundabout at the end of Caracasbay road coming to the villa. Villa Vis is right at this roundabout and serves Fresh Fish and seafood, while Pops Place is half a mile along the Caracasbay beach. Pops place serves traditional food.

Two other restaurants in the area are  Landhuis Brakkeput Mei Mei and Friends in front of the Eden Mal. They offer excellent Caribbean/international food.  Landhuis Brakkeput is  situated at Brakkeput which is a right turn on the Caracasbaaiweg in the direction of Jan Sofat.  Landhuis Brakkeput offers also life music on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. Telephone:+5999- 767-1500. Friends offers Happy hour at their cocktail bar every day from 16:30 to 18:30.  

El Gaucho is an Argentinian steak House  One of our favourite also quite near by The Eden Mall . It has nice juicy steaks and salade bar and offers a tremendous view by night looking toward Willemstad. Distance from our vacation rental is 10 minutes drive. Follow the signs on Caracasbaaiweg (in direction to town) and turn right at the Eden Mall and then turn again right up a hill. Prices are moderate. Their recommended three course menu included salad bar is  often the best deal in the area.

L’ Aldea is an all you can eat restaurant with a Brazilian touch and Brazilian Jungle theme. Everyone receives a color sign card with two sides red or green. Green means more meat please and Red means pause or I have enough.  They will bring the meat and cut a piece in your plate. The ambiance with tropical plants and water flowing like a river brings you in another world. Prices are about $50 per person. Location: Sta. Catharina #66. Telephone L’Aldea: +5999-767-6777.

Down Town you can eat Thursdays in the evening at: “Bij de Buren” a restaurant in front of the Big Curacao sign on Queen Wilhelmina Plein. On Thursday they oftend have a show and life music in front of the restaurant.

If you want to sit at the St Annabay harbour or on dock of the bay, we recommend Iguana, they also have live music in the evening or La Bahia Seafood & Steakhouse in Otrabanda. Brionplein near the Pontoon bridge. They offer nice food with an excellent view over the harbour. Telephone: 462-7400 ext 1710.
