Arrived early in the evening after swimming with the turtles at nearby Playa Grandi. Immediately struck by the view and all the quirky little landscaping detail. Had the Snapper (excellent) and my daughter had the pork and papaya (also excellent) with local rice and beans (yum). They took credit card or guilder and we hated to leave it was so beautiful there as the sun set. Highly recommend

We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we dined here twice, once coming all the way from Willemstad. In a 7 day trip, making that effort indicates just how fabulous Shelterrock Paradise is! The first night we enjoyed luscious local fare, watched sunset from the mountain top, and talked with the amazing chef who created this fabulous location. Our second visit was for the fire coconut chicken. Truly delicious and absolutely worth the drive. Cannot say enough about the staff and food at Shelterrock. Make sure to put it on your Curacao must-do list!!

This is one restaurant you must eat at while on Curacao. The food is incredible. The mountain view can not be beat and the service is wonderful. We were so well taken care of while we were they and then when the food arrived we could not believe the quality, the taste - amazing. This is just an overall fantastic dining experience!

Myself and 12 others that were staying at The Natural Curacao dined here on a Friday. It was organized by Tatiana at The Natural Curacao. I cannot describe the character of this place so I shall let the posted photos do the talking. Although the place takes on the deliberate character of being a bit of a funky junkyard the food is far from it. As a special meal, we were served chicken that had been stuffed inside a coconut and cooked for two hours under hot coals. It was kind of a Curacao version of a luau. The chicken, in the cooking, absorbs the oil from the coconut and it had the most amazing flavour of any chicken dish that I have ever had. Sliced baked potatoes covered in melted cheese, and salad accompanied the meal. I had three Amstad beers with the meal and the total came to about US$34. Totally worth it and a totally unique experience.

This place was a bit difficult to find (directions on google weren’t accurate but there are signs on the road on where to turn) but well worth it. This is a family run restaurant located on a hill in the country. There was a donkey in the garden and 3 adorable dogs that accompanied us to our table and sat with us the whole meal. The restaurant is open air but covered. The food is home made and local and fresh. I had the best Red Snapper I have ever had and my wife had a delicious catch of the day which was Mahi Mahi. Service was relaxed and very friendly. Worth the trip to eat at this place. Very reasonably priced as well.
