I was invited to dinner here with some others staying at the nearby hotel. When our group of 7 ordered, the manager kept trying to upsell all of us to more expensive dishes and told us he wouldn't order what we were choosing. I asked what fish was local, after he tried to convince me salmon was the best and... More

The food was good! I had grilled chicken with garlic. A bit pricy but really good so worth the money. You also get a lot, so I got to take home a doggy bag :) The view of Punda and the sea is nice too.

Sitting on the deck watching the waves and ships was cool. The day we were there was blustery and cloudy so not the best, Loved the hug thick rock walls of the Fort. I ordered the Drado. Ehh! I didn't like it : it was full of bones, overpriced and not very good. My husband had the Chicken Swiss style... More

I had the mixed grill, meat was tough and very dry. as a starter I had shrimps, they where average. Staff was very friendly. If I ever end up in there again, I'll be ordering fish, fish was looking great! I know, on an island I should eat the local fish not any imported meat....

Great location with a beautiful view over the water and Willemstad. The food was very tasty! I had ribs, and i completely finished them. However, it was SUPER windy up there, so hold on to your food/beer/purse/etc. They had one out of the wind spot to eat which in retrospect i probably should have requested.

Visited with 16 people & we thought we would be at separate tables but this restaurant was able to accommodate all of us at one long table on their upper back deck. There was also a large group directly behind us. Great view of the city & the sea but fairly windy. A lower level might not be as windy.... More

On the top of The Rif Fort, the restaurant gives you a beautiful panoramic view of the sea. The service is not great and food can improve, however the privilege location of the restaurant worth it all. The Argentinian churrasco is a good choice.

Great spot on the Rif Fort on the two level of what was the old fort with these great thick walls. Super views of the city and the ocean We went on a Friday night and the place was very busy. If you go get a table by the wall so that you can soak in the view. I had... More
