Great location and very good food

Second floor of Fort Rif, great location, great scenery. Food was very good, my wife and I both had fish that was very good. Our waiter at times struggled with english. Overall wouldn't hesitate to go back. Be careful going up there stairs.

The ambience is nice. Can be a bit windy depending where you are seated. Staff was quite attentive. My husband's meat was good, but the grouper I ate was tough! They killed it twice. Very thick piece of fish and no flavor in the inside because of the thickness. Not enjoyable at all. The wine is kept in the fridge...?... More

Great setting on rooftop of Rif Fort , overlooking the ocean and colorful Williamstead. Whole red snapper was amazing , so fresh with garlic and lime seasoning, great ribs, and Argentinian steak so flavorful. Top it off with a Sunday cappuccino ,which is a sundae , or chocolate cake with zambuca flame and you have a great dinner in curacao!

Not by any means a gourmand's delight but an enjoyable value-for-money meal. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Like the outdoor seating but lots of waiting and slow service. Food was fine if you stick to meat. Enjoyed the grilled kebobs. Casual dining and drinking close to the water and elevated location offers a nice view of the city.

We arrived in Willemstad on Friday the 13th. We wandered Into Rif fort and to Steak and ribs. It was 2130 and not all the crowded. We were sat quickly and provided with menus and beverages. I ordered the Argentinian steak, my daughter ordered BBQ ribs, and my wife the breaded shrimp. All three of our meals were outstanding. Another... More

3.5 stars. The protein served with each of our meals was great. My husband had the mixed grill, I was jealous. I had the strip steak, which was perfectly seasoned. Kids had the kids filets and were not disappointed. You have a choice of potato (Baked or fried) and the menu said it comes with a salad… Umm… Potato salad?... More

We were happy to be seated with a clear view of the channel into Willemstad's harbor, and at a time that let us watch tugboats escort a container ship into port. Service was good and food was good. My Sweetheart had the grilled chicken and I had a T-Bone. We ordered drinks--a Margarita and a Bloody Mary--and felt that the... More

We enjoyed the view from the restaurant especially when cruise ships were nearby. I would recommend spare ribs and lamb - very delicious.
