We went here for dinner while on our honeymoon. The outside dining is very romantic & the food was great.

A very nice experience. The food was excellent, French style, perfect proportions and delicious. The atmosphere is very calm and sophisticated- there is a dress code, no t-shirts. The service was delightful and particular with a gentle smile.

there were not too many restaurants that I have enjoyed on the island, but this one was definitely worth the money; located in Rif Fort, it is a great place for fine dining; quiet and with properly trained wait staff. Great food and drinks.

I have been to Bistro a million times. Their food is always awesome and they are very consistent with serving quality. The staff is very professional compared to most restaurants on Curacao what makes the whole experience even better. Bistro is a must go place when you visit Curacao.

Only here for drinks to sit outside and watch the waves crash against the rock wall around the bistro. Minimum $25 charge card and they do not take American Express and could not break a $100 bill. Lovely restaurant decor and menu looks nice however we did not feel overly welcomed on a Wednesday afternoon where there were only 6... More

if you want your hollywood type romantic dinner you always see on films this is the spot. Dine with the sound of the waves and good service. French menu and good wines.

This is a fairly classic restaurant, don't expect earth moving food....just nice food,with a staff that work hard at pleasing you. You can sit outside ,right by the water. You can also go for a late drink. Good cognac,calvados.

Just what the title says: Probably the best views of Otrobanda, especially in the evening. Food was mediocre at best. Service was on par with food. Stay away.
