We've lost count of our visits to Trio Penotti over the past two years, but that is because it is so good. We thought the food excellent last year but it is even better this year. We have been to fancier places on Curacao with some very refined dishes, but somehow the dishes at Trio have the character of the... More

We were so pleased with our visit to Trio Penotti. Our server was delightful and very helpful (I wish I could remember her name as she was one of the best servers we had during our whole vacation and deserves the recognition.) The restaurant caters to vegans and vegetarians which is not very common on the island, especially the vegan... More

Trio Penotti was a bit of a drive, but so well worth the trip that we made reservations to go back before our vacation ends. The atmosphere is very casual, so come as you are, whether dressed for going out or just back from the beach. We went as a group of seven - 4 adults, 1 teen, 2 children.... More

This simple ranchero looking restaurant has unexpected great and formal service. Their food was well prepared, garnished and prepared. I had rather catch of the day and my hubby the beef tenderloin.

This funky, out of the way gem is amazing! We started with spring rolls filled with cheese and African Peanut Soup with bananas. Both were excellent. Main courses were barracuda, sea bass with coconut and a spicy Thai beef. Each of these dishes was so filled with a combination of spices and flavors that we were still talking about them... More

Our favorite of three very good local restaurants that we tried. Great Value. A small restaurant with friendly, helpful staff. All outdoor seating so you can enjoy the fantastic weather. Very knowledgeable and accommodating for gluten free.

Reasonable prices compared to many other overpriced places on the island. We have tried the "catch of the day" 3 times there and fish was just magical! The meat is so-so. Chicken is fine, but nothing compared to the fish!

You should definitely make this your first stop to eat on the island. The African peanut soup was delicious. There were 4 in our group and we went twice. Both times the food was delicious and large portions. Service was friendly and quick. The best service and food on the island!

Delicious lunch ! Big salad and sandwich, not a big lunch menu, but worked fine for us after a visit at the Shete Park
