Wherever you are staying on the island, a meal at Landhuis Daniel is well worth the drive to the middle of Curacao. Granted, if you have touristic, resort-like expectations, you might become a bit peevish in the authenticity of this setting. The location itself is beautiful with native flowers in soil and pots gracing the entrance. The service is low-key and at a gentle pace. Ah, but the food is worth the wait and is to be savored, enjoyed, and even cherished. We started with the walnut -honey kissed brie which was presented atop a variety of spring greens grown in a greenhouse within view of the dining porch. My husband chose the bouillabaise which had been highly recommended by the host where we were staying on the island. Just the aroma as our server placed the bowl on the table made me wonder if I should change my order. However, the tuna and polenta with more fresh greens did not disappoint. For dessert, the creme brullee was smooth and not too sweet. Glasses of Chardonnay were cold and delicious. We enjoyed our dinner on island time and will return. I would suggest a day for swimming at near-by secluded Playa San Juan, and then a late luncheon or early dinner at Landhuis Daniel Restaurant. The historical charm is of another era which should delight any diner of any age or nationality.
