There isn't another dining room on Curaçao that blends food, setting, and service as capably as this 30-year-old French/Swiss restaurant. Located in an early-19th-century Dutch fort at the entrance to St. Anna Bay, the restaurant has fabulous views of Punda, Queen Emma Bridge, and the Caribbean Sea from the outdoor terrace. Chef Ghislain Berends's classic Continental cuisine—savory onion soup with a slab of French bread and Gruyère cheese, thick Argentine filet mignon—draws a local, professional crowd. Be sure to reserve a table on the seaside terrace. If the weather's foul, the bistro has sheltered seats inside Rif Fort's thick walls, including the bastion's vaultlike former cistern.

Open daily from noon to 2 pm and 6 to 10:45 pm.
