We returned to this restaurant after approx. two years, but are disappointed how it developed. The appetizers had little taste and so in fact the remainder of the dinner. Two of us ordered lobster as a a main dish, which they could hardly get out of the shell. French fries were served for everybody and the vegetables were very little... More

The restaurant has probably the best view of any in Curacao with views over the harbour. BUT, the penalty for eating outside is that they only offer the fish menu and not the meat choices that are available inside although after we had ordered one other table did get a meat choice. The food was very good but expensive.

This nice restaurant has a beautiful view, I recommend make a reservation for an outdoor table at night, you can see all the fishes really near of the edge, the food is also very good, they serve an amazing risotto and on my case a really good "catch of the day", the deserts are very good too

This restuarant has many things going for it - its perfect location in Riffort, it's well considered decor and the offer of dinner on the deck or in a historic water cistern. I haven't even gotten to the food, the menu is stylish but not needlessly complex, it was difficult to choose what to have but it was all good.... More

Appetizers other than the soup are way overpriced. Our entrees and soups were very good. Service was great but slow, three hours for dinner. Sitting outside was cool because of seeing the large fish but uncool due to overspray. A must do while in Curacao if you have lots of time and money

We were fortunate to have the dining room to ourselves, and everything was superb. Service, food, atmosphere and ambiance. A little on the pricey side, but worth it for a special occasion like this. We will definitely return the next time we're in Curacao. Allen Beck

As with our trip in 2011, we returned to Bistro Le Clochard for our final supper on the island (a burgeoning tradition). We enjoyed our celebratory Champagne (a delayed celebration of my wife’s birthday) and sitting outside enjoying the warm breeze and the views of Willemstad. Our appetizers were delicious, and I especially enjoyed the foie gras. My wife had... More

This Bistro can be found outside Rif Fort and is a short walk along the waterfront from either the Free Ferry across St. Anna Bay or the Queen Emma Floating Pontoon Bridge. If weather is okay then opt to sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the view. You will find the food and service are top notch and more... More
