Lovely place to eat

After some dinner disappointments in other restaurants we went to Steak&Ribs at the Rif fort for dinner. The restaurant is situated at the upper walls of the fort. No inside tables, but only outside dinner. It is always busy, due to the quality of the food and the kindness of the staff, as we... read more

The garlic shrimp was awesome, my husband had a steak and it was ok. Great view, super nice waiters/waitresses. I would go there again!

Ribs should not be part of the name, they were just okay. The view of the Rif Fort was the best part of this dining experience.

I was here a few times for dinner and food was always good - their ribs even got a "not bad" from a friend from Chicago ;) The view is really nice, the staff is very attentive and funny. It can get crowded in the evening, so be there early!

Went there two nights for very informal business meetings, great view, nice and breezy. The food was tremendous, the seafood platter was very tasteful and the rack of lamb was made to my liking. The Sangrias were great, everything was just great!

A frequented restaurant when in Curacao. Although the price has been raised slightly above where I believe they should be, it still remains a must go to location. Good food, great waiters, and fantastic view in a historical fort and new destination for the locals as well as the guest from abroad.

Don't miss this one if you are visiting Curacao. The food is fabulous, the service is excellent, the prices are reasonable and you can eat outside under the stars, overlooking the harbour. I love the chicken brochettes and am told the steaks are superb. They serve great bread when you sit down and dinner portions are huge. We go back... More

We enjoyed our meal here. I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. My husband got the tenderloin, which he enjoyed. The staff were friendly and the service was good. The only down side was that it was very windy, being an outdoor restaurant on the third floor of the RIF Fort. Although, it might now always be that... More
