We got a table overlooking the square of the old fort. My wife took the ribs and she was very happy with her choice.... read more

I had the meat sampler which featured five different meats for dinner. They were all excellent. The location and views of the sea from Rif Fort are hard to beat. It's an enjoyable place to have dinner.

This restaurant enjoys a prime location on the top level of the Rif Fort, with views overlooking the harbor and the ocean. I wanted to sit for a while and enjoy the view, but I'd already had dinner. The wait staff was happy to show me the dessert menu, and the most interesting item was the "special" cake, which was... More

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 could discover later on. We were... More

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.
