Welcome back to our “Restaurant of the Week” blog series. This week’s highlight is also a MOTC Card partner in Willemstad, Curaçao. This is an absolute insider tip we don’t want to withhold from you!

Insider Tipp, the Ocean House 19

Because Ocean House 19 is more than just a restaurant – it is a place where you can indulge in culinary delights amidst a breathtaking backdrop. Located directly on the reef fort, the restaurant offers its guests an unforgettable view of the turquoise sea and the city’s historic architecture.

The owners

Behind the success of Ocean House 19 are the two passionate gastronomes Mike and Grisnaldy van de Sande. Our Magic of the Caribbean partner Mauricio Villanueva, the owner of neighboring Tapas Bar & Restaurant Ceviche 91 also attended the Grand Opening. With their many years of experience and unbridled enthusiasm for good food, the van de Sandes have created a restaurant that has become one of the most popular meeting places for locals and tourists alike.

The couple attaches great importance to hospitality and a pleasant ambiance, which is evident in every detail, from the friendly service to the stylish interior of the restaurant. Their passion for fresh, seasonal ingredients and their attention to detail are visible in every dish.

Welcome in a warm ambient.
