“Lovely View and Solid Food”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

We ate here twice while in Curacao. The view is one of the best in Curacao so right off the bat you have that going for you. Yes, the service is a bit slow and checkered, but we found that to be the norm while in Curacao. But the menu here shows a lot of diversity and the food is great, so this is a keeper. We loved the red snapper, the grouper, the shrimp risotto and even the spaghetti. For desert, we had an awesome banana dish that was a fun play on a banana split. Both kids and adults alike really enjoyed the Perla Del Mar, we will return.

“First dinner in Curacao”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Wonderful food, friendly staff and great place beside the sea. We were there during Xmas party season so there were large party tables set up nearby. We still got a great table and friendly service.

“Beautiful space, lackluster service”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Loved the space on the water, and the old world charm of the environment, but my steak arrived cold and raw (it was ordered medium rare) and the other dish, Conch was tender but over spiced. They management really tried to make it right, but the steak came back rare, although it was warm this time. I like a good steak cooked rare to medium rare, but this wasn't that. The waiter never brought silverware so we snatched from a nearby table after waiting a few minutes. No bread or anything came out while we waited for our meal, which took 45 minutes after ordering which took 15 minutes. We're ok with tropical speed service, but this was an uncaring environment.

The quality of the beef was excellent, though.

“Lovely setting”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Really pretty setting, and the food was good.
Where the restaurant didn't meet our expectations was simply in regards to the service. It's "efficient" in that there are all sorts of people coming & going from your table to bring this or take that, but you don't seem to have one main person. Actually, we didn't feel like we saw the same person twice over the evening.
The restaurant markets itself at the higher end, and the food & prices would reflect that but, for us, part of the dining experience is the Server and the feeling you are being taken care of.
This felt more like a well oiled machine, where every employee had one purpose, and they had us in and out in just over an hour - no lingering aloud!

The place Is very Nice, but the manager is very rude. i saw him being very impolite with a Family, Just because kids would not like to eat in that restaurant. The Family got out.
