This is a great place to grab a drink, eat, shop or just hang out with family/friends. It is very pretty at night

This is a popular (with tourists) outdoor spot to eat, drink, and shop. It's definitely a 'tourist only' spot.

Outdoor cafes, restaurants with view of Punda, small shops and nightly entertainment. It's right next to the Renaissance and the Carnival Casino.

Lots of tourists! The cruise boats dock close to this location so very busy! Go farther into town, in Punda for shopping. Those stores seemed a little pricey!

Totally refurbished as a shopping mall with restaurant.....it cateres mostly to the ships that docks just minutes away. At night it is more quiet and the atmosphere in the restaurant is great.

Find the lift and go to the fourth floor. You will find a few small restaurant bars on a wooden balcony on top of the Fort parapets where you can enjoy a meal or simply have a beer or cocktail whilst viewing the ships go by.

I grew up on the island and remember the fort when it was run down. They've done a terrific job restoring this historic site and turning it into a nice place to visit for both locals and tourists. There are cafes, bars, restaurants, and shops. But the best part about Riffort is the views upstairs. You're right at the entrance... More
