Jaanchi's Restaurant

This outdoor restaurant is a great way to eat the local food as the locals eat it. With little formality and fried food, this eatery is a nice break from some of the more formal, and expensive, restaurants in the area.


Jaanchi's offers a number of local dishes including the common fried plantains and the not-so-common iguana.

Jaanchi's Restaurant delights Curacao with Caribbean cuisine that's so yummy many who pass through their doors just can't get enough. The option to eat here is on the table during both dinner and lunch, so give it a try.


The outdoor diner is frequently visited by both birds and bugs. So bring your bug spray and keep an eye out for thieving birds.


Jaanchi's Restaurant lies on the northwestern edge of the island of Curacao; it is to the north of Westpunt.

Considering there are not too many attractions of note nearby, some guests may prefer to hire a cab to encounter better-known attractions.

Another site of note in this area is Westpunt, a nearby beach, where tired travelers can recharge on the warm sand.
