When we travel, we always ask the locals where to eat. In the case of Curacao, everyone we asked, recommended Jaanchie's. So on the way home from one of their spectacular beaches, we decided to give Jaanchie's a try. We are so glad we did....More

We had a great time at Jaanchie's. We were told if we wanted authentic Curacao cuisine, including trying iguana, this was the place to go. The scenery is gorgeous, open concept with a garden with local birds flying around. The wait staff was friendly, but...More

I don't know for sure. When we went it was open from about 12 o'clock until about nine in the evening. I think they are open every day.
