We searched all over for this place and I'm glad we did. They are so friendly and the food is absolutely amazing. We had the steak skewer and the piri piri chicken and they were so tasty. It is worth the trip!

This place was amazing. We had the chicken skewer, sausage and ribs. All were great. The sausage was actually one of my favourite. Great flavour to it. The lady was super awesome serving us. I’ve been to expensive Brazilian steakhouses in Canada and this place...reminded me of them. This is a must stop for anyone who wants grilled meat.More

This is a quaint little restaurant run by a husband and wife. We came here twice and it does not disappoint. The beef and chicken skewer with chimichurri was so delicious! And the wife who was handling the tables was the friendliest woman and so...helpful. The food was spectacular.More

We’ve ventured to Curaçao twice now, a week each time. We stumbled upon Piri Piri on our first trip after bailing on a dinner reservation. The parking lot is tucked in off of the road and feels like someone’s driveway, which we thought “hmm this...is odd but let’s try it out” The restaurant itself is perched on a deck which has been built around an existing tree, gives the whole place a rustic/natural/comfortable feel. The service was great, and the Piri Piri chicken (incredibly spicy grilled chicken breast) stuck in our minds as being so delicious that we remembered it for 4 years after our visit. Flash forward to December 2022 and we made Piri Piri our first stop after arriving. Again, good friendly service and wonderful food. Piri Piri chicken was as good as it was in 2018, the chicken & beef combo skewers were also tasty, and the Piri Piri pork was a close 2nd place to the chicken but also awesome. We even returned for lunch a few days later and ordered some other items including suckling pig (great by the way), and shrimp (ummm possible new favorite here). Overall, Piri Piri is a must eat for anyone who wants grill food, and to enjoy an inexpensive lunch/dinner in a casual outdoor settingMore

What an excellent place! Super friendly staff, chef and owners. And the food outstanding! We had the lomito skewer, chicken piri piri, a kids menu and the amazing pulpo. Not sure which one was better! Other items in the menu looked attractive as well. We'll...be back for sure.More

I was doing my homework to find some restaurants for us to go to on our holidays. This one came up on Tripadvisor with great reviews. It did not disappoint. The service was excellent and the food delicious! If in Curacao this is a spot...that you should make sure you visit. Thankful for tripadvisor and the reviews people post. It really can help make for a fantastic holiday. Did I mention it was also very reasonable on the pocket book.More

We left our resort two nights in a row to dine here because the food was wonderful. The garlic shrimp, red snapper, skewers-it didn’t matter what you ordered it was delicious. The owners work here along with the staff and they are friendly and accommodating....Both nights we were the only tourists in the packed restaurant, and I believe that if the locals eat somewhere, it must be good. It’s worth every penny, and worth the trip.More

Nice atmosphere here. Sangria was decent and food was alright. My husband had the shrimp and I had the picana (beef). The picana was cooked perfectly, but it was very drippy like it was drenched in oil or something. 1 side is included with each...dish at least according to the bill as there was not a separate charge. I did see where several people recommended the piri piri chicken, but unfortunately I don’t have a tolerance for hot food so I can’t speak for it. As many have said, there is limited parking, 4-5 cars inside the gate and 2-3 outside of the gate. The owner doesn’t speak any English, but if you know a little Spanish and hand mime a bit you can get by. There is one English speaking waitress who normally handles the food orders at least. Overall, if you are only in Curacao for a few days I would probably skip this one.More

We had dinner here on our last night in Curacao (Nov 24). What a great ending to an amazing week in Curacao! It's a little tucked away from the street, but the signs are good - so no real issues finding it. Parking is limited,...so we just parked on the side of the street. As others have said, the owners are absolutely delightful! But don't speak any english - but we made out OK (the one waitress speaks english, and was able to help us - so no big deal). Great service!! The food was fantastic. 3 of us had the hanging skewers, which were not only delicious, but definitely a unique way of eating! The other had the fish, which was excellent. The sides were really good, as well. Prices were very reasonable for the meals, the wine, and the sides. Would certainly recommend this place for a unique dining experience!More

Location too near the street. Parking space are scarce. Staff very friendly, the owner doesn't speak English. Ordering was smooth and easy. The chicken was excellent. The beef was also good. The children's menu chicken nuggets looked to be bought from the local supermarket. That...needs real improvement. If you choose Piri piri, have s try on the chicken satay. The price is in line with what you get.More

Piri Piri is located in a cozy spot with a lot of shadow. The food itself was good and service was good aswel. The owner is a nice Portugese lady that doesn't speak english or dutch but sure shows a lot of care for her...customers. The staff was friendly and the menu has a lot of options to choose from. We got the Piri Piri chicken with different sides. The quality was good for the price and would surely visit againMore

We ate here last night and we had to come back before we left Curacao because it was our favorite restaurant on the island . We had piri piri chicken, roast chicken and rib eye steak. We are food obsessed and I think that this...might be the best roast chicken that I’ve ever had. The proprietors are warm and friendly and it’s such a great place to spend an evening. Very inexpensive too!!More
