Worldly Restaurants

Curaçao offers the flavors of the globe. At Bistro le Clochard, a formal French-and-Swiss restaurant, crpes stuffed with seafood ragot should be savored on its waterfront balcony. Or visit the open-air Old Market, where vendors grill chicken, fish, or even goat for lunch. Seating is communal, so picnic tables are likely to be shared by government employees, cab drivers, and tourists. Holland’s colonial ties to Indonesia mean the island is one of the few places you can find a rice table (an Asian feast with dozens of small, spicy dishes).
