The oldest restaurant of Curacao; Jaanchie’s

While planning on exploring the different activities to do in Westpunt, you should beyond any doubt plan a stop at Jaanchie’s Restaurant as this iconic venue is an attraction on its own.


“Jaanchie’s is the oldest restaurant in Curaçao and is a must-stop place to eat for so many reasons”


As you pass through the front door, you will instantly feel as you entered your grandmother’s house as an inviting ambiance and recomforting smell define the eatery. You will certainly be charmed by this culinary experience as yellow bananaquits birds will be entertaining you while eating as they overcrowd the garden forming the front part of the restaurant. If you are looking to connect with the local culture during your vacation, it is a great place to consider as you will get to meet Mr. Jaanchie himself. No hard copy menu will be given to you as he will be explaining the dishes of the day to you. It’s the perfect opportunity for you to taste different specialties of the island such as stews with chicken, goat, or iguana. It is definitely the ideal place to truly explore the different flavors of Curaçao. Located in the heart of the most scenic area on the west side of the island, this main attraction can fortunately keep serving its amazing food in its own unique way as a crowdfunding was organized during the pandemic with the mission to preserve this emblematic food stop after 60 years of being open.
