De Kleine Wereld does an all-you-can-eat Tapas night on Thursdays for 24 USD. It's kind of the big draw from their ads announcing it on the island's weekly nightlife circular. Coming from NY that's quite a bargain on paper, but ultimately you'll be fed reheated frozen hors d'oeuvres from the nearby dutch Albert Heine grocery store... Or so it seemed.... More

De Kleine Wereld is a small cafe-restaurant right next to the Marina. We came on a hot day and sitting in the shade looking over the bay was very nice. Service was friendly and helpful.

Nice setting at the water front, but the food is not very good. Some nice dishes, some are bad and not really worth eating. So just try all the tapas, so you can compare yourself.

Big variaty of tapas, good quality, no food to waste since you can order 2 servings fo tapas at the time, service could be better (a lot of personel, very quiet evening). Great place near the water.

At the moment they only serve tapas and the quality is really poor. All you can eat. But better serve good food for a good price. Because the location is great. It used to be a good restaurant.

Good visit quite a ways down south. Need a car. Staff was great, food was good for about $22.00. You order in pairs before you get your next one so as to not waste food. I think you will get charged if you don't finish your food. I don't know because I finished my food.

I only stopped by to ask for directions and got 4 people helping me. If they take such great care of a stranger off the street, I can only imagine how well they treat their actual customers! We didn't make it there this time around, but we will definitely come back next time we are in Curacao, it looked quite... More

De Kleine Wereld is a nice restaurant located right on the water. They have a good menu, but they also have "all you can eat" specials. Thursday is chicken schnitzel, for example. We have gone on numerous occasions and have always had a very good meal at a reasonable price. I would always suggest this restaurant

Not sure this is every night, but on Sunday (when we went) there was an 'all-you-can-eat' tapas menu. I usually void this phrase at all costs, but here you are not permitted to order more unless you have finished what you have (and you are limited to 3 per person at a time)..plus you pay a fine for every dish...
