Description: L'aldea is an Amazonian themed Churrascaria that combines the authentic cuisine of Brazil with the generous spirit of Curacao. After dinner take a romantic stroll between the ruins and enjoy our life-size, hand made sculptures. Stand on the sacred bridge look around and feel yourself deep within the jungles of South America, between the mysterious sculptures and the Mayan pyramid awakening the spirit of these ancient civilizations in your soul.

We went for the Amazonia tour which was very nice for the kids before starting dinner. The whole location looks like an old Aztec ruin but in addition to the great restaurant it also houses a sort of mini zoo, with parrots, lizards - great for kids
We dined in the patio area where they serve pinchos (meat on skewers) this was my 1st pincho experience and I relished it. The menu is limited to beef, chicken, shrimp and fish. Stick to the beef. Each pincho consists of around 10 meat chuncks accompanied by several South-American sauces

The meat was tasty and cooked to perfection and is a great dining experience. The fried yuca side dish is a must. The staff is friendly and prices are above average but still worth it

The restaurant was a little far from our hotel but offered a free shuttle, which was nice. We went at night so did bit get to see the animals. Restaurant wasn't packed but had a few other tables. Decor is nice and the staff was very nice.

There are lots of options in both the salad bar and meat selections. It's a typical Brazilian a style where you get to chose if you want then to keep bringing you options or not. Meat was some if the best flavored we have had from a Brazilian restaurant and it was cooked well too.

The restaurant is a bit on the pricey side but being as it's all you can eat meat, that is typical. Make sure you go hungry!

This restaurant Is very nice and the decoration is amazing since you feel like if you were in the middle of the jungle surrounded by big trees. The food was very good and the quality of the meat was good also. The place is a little far away but is worth the trip to have a good time with friends and family.

Friends told us that the salad bar at l'Aldea is the best on the island and we should forget about the meatery. The latteer was not so difficult since we are both vegetarians for over 30 years.

My husband Henk and I must have looked like salad demons, the two of us huddled around filled containers full of greens, cheese and more delicacies, we counted over a 35 containers. Went back twice and figured we'd take a bit of each and share. I don't think we had counted on the portion sizes being so generous and did find ourselves able to finish each salad despite multiple swapping.

A real nice experience & we enjoyed the sound of the waterfall. The personnel very friendly and attentive.
Just like to add a small remark; some more vegetables would be a nice touch, fresh broccoli, string beans, carrots, etc.

From the fabulous salad bar in a separate, air-conditioned room to minimize the impact of flies, to the wonderful meats, to the incredible and unique atmosphere, this was a fantastic experience. You go inside and almost forget how miserable much of the surrounding area is, hard to believe I was on Curacao at this restaurant. The price is expensive but compared to many of the local competition it is easily worth it.
