This place is terrific! I came here almost every day for lunch. This used to be the Hardrock Cafe that closed some time ago. The owner Vincent does a wonderful job catering to locals and tourists alike. You'll even spot some of the local power brokers here (they're usually in a tie). Trust the daily blackboard special, sit and relax away the hours at this tranquil courtyard restaurant. Indoor as well as outdoor seating.
Favorite Dish: The daily special.
Located next to the Otrobanda Hotel and hiding underneath a much fancier looking restaurant, this place is terrific. The Chef/Owner Andre even came out to welcome me and, on a subsequent visit, he even cooked me a local specialty (Keshi) not even on his menu that day.
His winning strategy for his new place is to offer really authentic, local food in an accessible, pleasant setting that will appeal to any international visitor.
The restaurant is situated in a shady courtyard next to the museum. They offer a good range of international dishes and good wines. The service is fast and friendly.
there are not a lot of places to have local food in Willemstad,
but you can at the big eating market.
There's only one, so it's easy to find.
Favorite Dish: Red Snapper
We ate at Denny's on the last morning on the island. I was hungry for breakfast and we knew it would be fast.
There is a casino next door, handy for late night partiers.
This bakery was in the mall. The cheesecake, cookies, and ect all looked so good we had to buy some to take home with us.
Nice ambience, good food, worth a visit. Wok nights twice a week. Oriental buffet every Tuesday for $16.
Favorite Dish: Yakitori chicken and budha wok
Fine restaurant on the Otrobanda side, overlooking the water and the Punda side. Good food and service. Somehow expensive but a great experience. Wooden chairs uncomfortable.
