We remembered Awa di Playa from 7 years ago when we last visited, so we went back. First, they moved from the waterfront location to the parking lot. The place retained its extremely rustic feel, the "kitchen" is a metal shipping container, you get to...More

You have to be very careful. First ask for pricing. They know you are not from Curacao, so they price your fish as much as they want. Had a fish dinner to go, one fish (cup) soup and one beer for 25.00 USD. Not to...More

We ate here and the food was good but not the prices. My divemaster recommended the place as the freshest fish even though it looks like a dive. The fish was fresh. We ordered one "fish of the day"and 2 lemonades for lunch and the...More

First, let me say DELICIOUS fish lunch, prepared in the local style...nicely spiced and deep fried. No menu, just what they have that day spoken by the server. We had tuna and "whitefish" (which from the texture was likely Lionfish). Portions are very large, two...More
