Local eateries
Fun Curaçao

Content overview

How nice is it to taste the food from local eateries during your holiday? We can assure you one thing, the Antillean cuisine is excellent! From fish to tasty stoba’s (stews), you will find it on Curaçao. A big advantage of the local cuisine is that it is often cheap food and you get a plate for two. What else do you want!

We have tasted a number of eateries for you that we say, you should not miss this one!

Plasa Bieu

Large hall for local lunch on Curacao

Nowhere else can you taste Curaçao better than market hall Plasa Bieu located in the heart of Willemstad. Curaçaoans flock here at lunchtime to enjoy a large number of Creole dishes. Do not expect too much from the interior because it is actually a large hall with tables where you can all eat. The food they make and serve here is to die for. From a distance you can smell the delicious smells of food from the kitchen. You can eat many different dishes here such as fish, chicken, stoba and soups. You really shouldn't miss this lunch!

Nice to know: Many local eateries are only open at lunchtime because this is the most important meal on Curaçao!

Shelterrock Paradise

Eating with a beautiful view over the landscape of the west of Curaçao? That is possible Shelterrock Paradise! This unique location makes for an unforgettable evening away from the hustle and bustle of people or roads.

Nice to know: Sunsets are extra visible on top of the mountain.

Pop’s place is also a very tasty and affordable eatery on the Caracas Bay. You will be welcomed by a super nice and friendly hostess who knows everything about the menu. In the meantime, you can enjoy the beautiful view over the water and imagine yourself really in Curaçao life.


Jaanchies restaurant as a local eatery.

Jaanchies is a restaurant in Westpunt that is a well-known concept on the island. There is no menu available so you will be surprised every time again by the owner of the restaurant. The cozy atmosphere and location provide a true experience when discovering local food.

Nice to know: For anyone who likes to try new things, Jaanchies is known for its prepared iguana that it serves.

The Don street food

The Don is a Truki pan where they have delicious BBQ dishes. You pick up the food from the food truck and afterwards you can eat it on a square with cozy lighting.
