Caribbean Table: The Best Restaurant in Curacao 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 27, 2022

Our new feature Caribbean Table provides an in-depth look at CJ editors’ favorite restaurants from around the Caribbean, from 50 Best Restaurants in the Caribbean selections to lovely little out-of-the-way places worthy of a lunch or dinner. 

The inaugural edition takes you to what is the best restaurant on the island of Curacao: the Baoase Culinary Beach Restaurant.

Set right on the sand the island’s celebrated Baoase Luxury Resort, it’s helmed by celebrated Chef René Klop, who for years has served up a dazzling fusion of Caribbean and Asian flavors, along with some inspired takes on French classics. 

There are several options: you can do the Taste of Baoase, a four-course tasting menu that comes with a glass of champagne; or the Menu Gastronomique, a three or four course “surprise menu” dinner.

Or you can simply eat a la carte and take the journey through the outstandingly-sourced, meticulously executed menu. 

We simply love the out-of-this-world Steak Tartare, a perfect starter or main course, or you can go for seafood options like codfish, seabass or whole baked Dover sole. There’s also a full caviar menu to boot. 

What’s remarkable, though, is just how relaxed this place is: a Michelin-quality eatery where you can show up in sandals, for breakfast lunch or dinner. 

That’s a rather difficult feat to pull off. 

But at Baoase, it’s just another day.
