We went to bistro Le Clochard because locals told us they have a magnificent harbor view and a very good menu. Well, it was really disappointing. We could not eat on the terrace because of the wind. There are current heavy winds on the terrace. I witnessed some food blowing from the plates. Inside it is a rather small restaurant.... More

Exquisite food, superior waitstaff, but pricey. We didn't have reservations and the outdoor seating was full so we sat inside. Wow! This was part of the old Rif Fort. We were in a small, intimate section -- turns out it used to be the cistern for the fort! They gave us each (we didn't order) a small plate with a... More

This is one of those 'real' restaurants you hear people talking about, where a professional staff serves incredible food. We visited le Clochard for restaurant week which was a great way to 'try' this restaurant for a great price. The food was fabulous and the service was magnificent. Unlike most restaurants on Curaçao where they have students serving your food... More

In restaurant week we chose to have dinner at Bistro Le Clochard: an exclusive restaurant where we'd always wanted to have dinner once and luckily we did. We were welcomed neatly and seated by Rafael who also was our server for the evening. We chose to be seated outside on the terrace. Everything was just perfect: the location, the view,... More

Restaurant week in Curacao. Best time of year to try different restaurants and for a restaurant to show off their culinary skills. Bistro Le Clochard is one of the participating restaurants. Sadly they do not feel the need to wow the customers. First of all by handing over a wine card with only wines over $300.. When asked for a... More

This place, conveniently located in Riffort Village is unfairly into the deep of TA restaurant list. For the setting, the service and mainly for the amazing food it deserves a much better place than currently it holds. The restaurant has a wonderful view to the bay and you are always hearing the sound of the waves striking the shores. In... More

I brought my Father here to celebrate his birthday on April 27, 2015 along with King Wilhelm Alexander. We had a beautiful fish of the day lunch by the sea overlooking the Queen Emma bridge and the beautiful colored buildings of Curacao. THANK YOU for a beautiful, delicious lunch and the opportunity to make another unforgettable memory with my father.... More

We have eaten at Bistro before on several occasions. We were disappointed this time. Some of the food was excellent, and some mediocre to below par. Veal was the best choice and excellent. Waiter was friendly but quite slow, and totally forgot some basic things which we reminded them. They seemed understaffed - but we had a reservation. $$$$$. Beautiful... More

This restaurant was right near our hotel (the Renaissance), and my husband and I wanted to have dinner here because of the amazing outdoor patio overlooking the ocean. BTW - there are other places to dine that overlook the ocean. Let me say up-front: Go there instead! We always order more expensive meals and a bottle of wine. At $160,... More
