CTB Certification - Restaurants

The Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) is introducing certification programs for the Hospitality and Tourism Industry. These programs aim to be an incentive for service innovation, recognizing and promoting the quality level of tourism services provided.


The Certification Program for Restaurants is aimed at:

  • Restaurants that have (or have the ambition to have) tourists as customer segment of their business;
  • Restaurants that strive to deliver high quality services;
  • Restaurants that are willing to invest in improving their managerial skills, personnel skills, and the quality of their services;
  • Restaurants that are not part of an international franchise organization.


Why participate?

The benefits of having your restaurant CTB certified are:

  • Quality recognition by an independent party;
  • Permission to use the CTB quality label, a visual logo that serves as a symbol for offering quality services and taking care of safety precautions;
  • Have your restaurant listed on curacao.com;
  • Have your restaurant included in CTB’s local and international marketing activities;
  • Recommendations to innovate your business, including a Mystery shopping report.


The CTB Certification Program for Restaurants is executed by Curaçao Innovation & Technology Institute (CITI), a non-profit government foundation. Throughout the years CITI has gained much experience in the field of quality certification. Previous activities are the development and execution of a quality program for CASHA Apartments, and a CTB Certification Program for the Dive and Restaurant Industry. All CTB Certification Programs are evaluated, improved and repeated every two years.
