A wonderfully unique restaurant up in 'the real' area of Curacao.
We went for dinner and returned a few days later for lunch.
Food was excellent and the service was the friendliest that we experienced on the island.
Well worth seeking this place out!

The dive master from my dive suggested I give Shelterrock a go for dinner and to arrive around 6pm to watch the sunset. It was spectacular and very chill to sit, drink a cocktail and watch the incredible sunset.
What is special about this place is the family the runs it. Daisy and Rudy are the cooks in the kitchen, while Geto and David attend to the customers. They are incredibly nice and with only being open for nine months so far, they are very focused on quality service, food and ensuring you have a good time. I loved their entrepreneurship and caring attitude about their restaurant. They want everything to be perfect and strive to provide this for you. This is a true local gem that should be considered as a destination dinner as it is off the beaten path. If you're up towards Westpunt for the day (swimming with the turtles, hiking Chrisstofel Park, scuba diving a reef), plan to stay up there afterwards and have dinner at Shelterrock...you won't be sorry and the food is very tasty. Enjoy a dinner prepared with local Caribbean style spices and flavors, meet the family and grab a great view of the sunset over Santa Cruz.

Hidden in the Soto area we found this restaurant on a Monday evening. The owner warmly welcomed us and we were sitting on a high chair / table on the terrace. He told us they were open for 9 months now and the road towards was kind of a challenge, but once found it will not let you down. The scenery is with lot's of wood, and bohemian decoration. Food was ok. Definitelt visit this place when you are in the area. Even the dog is cute!

My friend and I ate pork with papaya and a hamburger, respectively, which was all delicious. The views from the restaurant are spectacular as well. But what really makes this restaurant worth visiting is the wonderful family who runs it. Gito, Levy, Daniel, and their mother are very friendly people who it was an absolute pleasure to meet and converse with. If I'm ever back in Curaçao, I will be back. Highly recommended.
