In Curacao the average price for eating out is around the same price as in the Netherlands. So you can actually make it as expensive or cheap as you want. In Curacao, payment is made with the Antillean guilder. 1 Antillean guilder is equal to approximately 48 cents. So you can take this into account when you see the prices with the dishes.


Food and drink on Curacao

Do you want to get acquainted with the cuisine of Curacao? Then choose iguana, for example. You have probably seen an iguana (‘iguana’) walking around on the island and it is a true delicacy in Curacao and Bonaire. Can’t see yourself eating an iguana that quickly? Then you can also opt for the perhaps slightly more accessible pastechi. This is a pasty filled with cheese, meat or fish. A typical drink that you really should not skip is Blue Curacao. This liqueur has a sweet taste and fits perfectly with the atmosphere on the island.
