We selected this location for the beautiful location. Total disappointment, appetizer, arepas con queso, wrong kind of cheese and tasted like frozen kind; ribs, dry and over cooked. Service to match with a cocky waiter that thinks he knows how to get a double tip by adding service charge then asking for a tip!

Marginal food. Good ambiance with live music. Met some interesting people. Mostly a tourist hangout.

The restaurant is located in the historic Rif Fort, located on top of the eastern wall facing the entrance to St. Anna Bay. From here, you can pass the time waiting for your meal by watching the tanker ships entering and leaving the harbor. You can also take in the view of the massive cruise ships docked close by.

Slowish service set off amply by great location and water views. Wonderful steak! Great seafood. Worth a try!! Best to come for lunch. A black water view awaits you at night.

The fish dishes are incredible and so is the calamari but platter is huge. Servings overall are large. Knowledgeable waits staff.went there for BBQ but appetizers filled us up. The steaks looked great and that's what most people order.

The food is very good. We got the chicken kabobs and they were amazing. You get a lot of food. The prices were good and the view is amazing. You could see alot including our hotel pool, the Renaissance Hotel and Casino.

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
