Curaçao Food and Drink

Restaurant styles vary from informal bistro to the very expensive.


• Traditional Dutch food (particularly using fresh seafood and cheeses) is popular.
Creole food (criollo) makes good use of the great variety of fresh fish.
French, Italian and other international cuisines are also on offer.


Bar staff, waiters, porters and doormen expect a 10% tip.

Regional drinks

Curaçao liqueur (made from the sun-dried peel of a bitter orange and a mixture of spices) is popular.
