    L'Alabama: Fine French Fare in Grand Case

    by TRimer Updated Jul 30, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    L'Alabama is named for a little-known place in Greece where owners Karin and Pascal Potin met. He was a bartender and she was a student. Together with Chef de Cuisine Franck Vuillemin, they create memorable French cuisine with a highly creative touch. Pairing raw with cooked and sweet with sour, they bring you exotic flavors in even the simplest of dishes. The service here is excellent (it can be a little snooty at some places on the marina).

    Favorite Dish: I had the warm goat cheese salad- delicious. The entrees were fabulous. My mom had the pork tenderloin with cinammon and carmelized apple sauce which she refused to share.

    Caribean spices !

    by Tetreus Written Nov 5, 2005

    Wherever you go in Curaçao, you'll eat very well !

    I liked very much to eat in this little Suriname restaurant in the centre of Willemstad.
    It's very close to the Plaza Hotel of Van der Valk.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken with Roti

    A delicious chickendish ! ( I made it also several times myself at home )

    * Chicken ( fry it first in a pan )
    * Potatoes
    * Green beans
    * Curry
    * Bouillon
    * Kokos
    * Soja

    Mix this al together and let it cook for a while.

    The roti is a kind of a flower pancake, which you bake in a pan.

    Take the roti in your hand..........and grap the chicken/vegetable mix and just enjoy thie delicious meal !!

    Marigot Marina

    by TRimer Updated Jun 6, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Try out any of the restaurants at the Marigot Marina.

    Here at the marina you will find brasseries and bistros as well as fine restaurants will satisfy the most discriminating gourmet. My favorites include Belle Epoque (good pizza) and Chanteclair. Le Saint Germain is also very good.

    Ayaca -steamed chicken with prunes, raising, green pepper, pickles, olives and onions.
    Keshi Yená -stuffed edam cheese

    Mi Poron a restaurant...

    by jake22 Updated Dec 12, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mi Poron a restaurant specializing in local foods, but was closed all week this trip. It was still advertised but no explanation for closing. It was still closed in 2003, this appears to be a permanent closing.
    Mi Poron is open only for dinner and doesn't open until 6 pm. There is both indoor and outdoor dining areas. There is a museum in the front which shows some of the early settlers life style. The food is good and the prices are competitive.

    Favorite Dish: The chicken special was breast meat with a sauce
    of prunes, black and green olives, pearl onions and raisins, covered with cheese.

    Rainbow Cafe: Views in Grand Case

    by TRimer Updated Aug 8, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the oldest restaurants in Grand Case. During the twenty-two years that Rainbow Café has pleased its diners, the reviews have always been favorable. Just this year alone it was featured in the NY Times Sunday Travel Section, Travel and Leisure, and the Wine Spectator's 'Treasures of the Caribbean' issue.

    Favorite Dish: The French-based cuisine is spiced with Caribbean flavors and enhanced by the beautiful dining room with its fantastic views across Grand Case Bay.

    Claude Mini-Club: French Creole Dining

    by TRimer Updated Aug 8, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Always a favorite, Le Mini-Club is the oldest restaurant in Marigot. The atmosphere like a tree house with palm trees coming in through the floor.

    Favorite Dish: French/creole food. They are known for their fish soup. Don't miss their buffet on Wedneday and Saturday nights, which includes lobster and many other items ($40- pp including unlimited wine, tip and a wonderful entertainer during dinner).

    The night of our engagement

    by Chrystalain Updated Jan 22, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went in this lovely restaurant and had a very nice but expensive dinner. While talking, we decided to get engaged. No ring. Just our word and our love. The day after, I asked Alain if he had changed his mind. He said no. We went back to the restaurant and took a
    picture of us at the table we were the evening before. We also took a picutre of the people who own this restaurant, French and Quebecers. Very nice people. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the restaurant’s name but I am searching for it. It is on the road from Mullet Beach to Cupecoy Beach. Since we had asked for the empty bottle of wine we drank (a nice rosé), we filled it of the Cupecoy Beach sand. It is still in my livingroom. That was our engagement ring.

    by sandravdp Written Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Terrace restaurant at Willemstad
    prices are rather expensive, because most goods must be brought to the island by boat or plane...

    If you must go to a supermarket, take an ordinary one, never shop at 'Suikertuintje' very expensive and the cockey people there are rude to the locals!!

    Favorite Dish: Fish with frenchfries and fruitbreakfast, yummy!

    by Travel_Chick Written Sep 7, 2002

    If you're on the french side, it's basically difficult to find a restaurant that is not good. In Grand Case they are supposed to have the best restaurants, but everywhere we went was wonderful. We had mostly french cuisine, but you can also get more local 'island food' like johnny cakes from a truck stand which really hits the spot after a night of partying.

    La iguana: La iguana

    by vela_candela Written Sep 2, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: The speciality of most of the restaurants in Curazao is 'iguana', and loads of sandwich places... so here you can try 'Sandwich de Iguana'!! two in one! Actually there is nothing different to eat in Curazao from this, so you have to be open to new experiences, or keep on sandwiching!

    I don't have a specific restaurant in mind, but there are many fine dining establishments all over the island. A very helpful website is:

    http://www.sxm-restaurants.com/index.html

    on this site you will find listings for restaurants by name, cuisine and a handy map for finding the restaurant of your choice. (I've included a map of Philipsburg).
    Each restaurant has its own unique qualities.

    Favorite Dish: You need to try the coconut shrimp, which is a carribean specialty: jumbo shrimp fried and rolled in shredded coconut.
    The drink of choice if you try no others is a St. Maarten specialty: the Guavaberry Colada.

    Two musts - Le Cottage and Mini Club. The buffet at the mIni Club is outstanding. It even includes a bottle of wine. Le Cottage in Grand Case, Mini Club in Marigot.
    Both have incredible service and great food selection. Price is reasonable too.

    Favorite Dish: All you can eat lobster from the Mini Club buffet!!!
