Kome

4.6/5

$$$

< 7 min

Kome is a modern American eatery. Inspired by global cuisines, local ingredients, and memories of home. Kome actually means "food" in Papiamentu. The food is delish and the meals served at Kome are prepared with as much local produce and ingredients as possible. Unlike many places in Curaçao, Kome is a restaurant where you can sit inside (aircon), but also outside in the garden. There are a number of tables where you can have a nice dinner outside.

our favs

We recommend the crispy calamares and the peppered hanger steak. You must try their espresso martini, it’s delicious. They also brew their own beer so if you like craft beer ask what they have on tap.

MosaCaña

5/5

$$$

< 15 min

MosaCaña is a restaurant, located in the Penstraat. The cuisine is international bistronomy, a combination of bistro and gastronomy. MosaCaña has a shared dinning concept, so the idea is that you share the dishes. We would recommend ordering 2 to 3 dishes per person, depending on how hungry you are. it is possible to sit in a super cozy garden or like a real local, inside in the air conditioning.

BKLYN is a chic, contemporary and cozy Gastro-bar. You can sit down, fill up your table with a wide variety of shareable food, elegant wines, bespoke cocktails and much more. All this is set in a comfortable and laid-back 90's hip-hop vibe. The dishes come from all over the world, but local cuisine isn't left out either, think pan ku patu (bread with duck) and stoba (Caribbean stew). Add an extensive wine list, specialty cocktails and a hip interior to that and you know this hotspot is not to be missed.

our favs

For lunch we recommend BKLYN club, Salmon bagel and the smoked Rib-Eye salad. For dinner we recommend the charcuterie, the scallops, pan ku pato buns, crispy kabritu stobá and the sweet potato jerk fries.Also try out their cocktails… They are delicious!

Serafina

5/5

$$$$

< 15 min

Serafina offers guests the chance to discover and enjoy the beauty and versatility of Italian cuisine in a cozy and intimate outdoor setting. Their carefully crafted menu is born out of their passion for quality ingredients. Aged Parmigiano Reggiano from the Northern Parma region, fresh young Burrata from Puglia and fresh truffles from Umbria are all sources of inspiration for their chef. You would think that because of the good Italian food there would be Italian staff, however, many locals work here and an Italian chef flies in every six months to give a master class. The beautiful garden and lights hanging in there create a romantic atmosphere at the restaurant.

our favs

We recommend the bruschetta pomodoro, fettuccine gamberi burrata e lime and for dessert we can recommend the vulcano di cioccolato. Don’t forget to drink a delicious wine or a limoncello.

opening hours

mon-sat 6pm - 10pm
