We loved our time here at this place. The vibe is the best in Curacao and food is even better. The staff are hospitable and gracious

Great service, awesome food and great ocean view. The ambience is breath taking, Curacao is a Dutch Island, so you can get the great European and Local flare.

This is an amazing restaurant at an amazing beach. The food is excellent! We had our children with us and there was food that everyone enjoyed. It's busy, so be prepared to stay a little while.

Food and service were great, the waiters were fast, the location was perfect. Different types of food, American, Caribbean and continental menu. A must!

Good atmosphere and super location (directly at the sea side), but food is average at best. Pizza was ok, but grilled chicken extremely overcooked, fish and steak served with some weird combination of rice and vegetables.

Located at the eastern part of the island, at Jan Thiel Beach, you can find the charming Zanzibar Beach & Restaurant. As the name implies, the bar and the restaurant radiate warmth and coziness of East Africa. Zanzibar Beach & Restaurant is open every day of the week from 8:00AM till at least 11:00PM for breakfast, lunch and dinner. During the whole day, enjoy a good cup of coffee or cappuccino, a cool smoothie, a refreshing beer, a soda, cocktail or delicious mixed drink. Rent a comfortable beach bed or a lounge bed and enjoy a relaxing day on the beach. If you would like to escape the heat of the sun, our beach offers shade under one of the many palm trees. Toilets and showers are available.
