The restaurant at riffort is great also because off the location. Stunning ocean view. Excellent staff. And great steaks. No the cheapest due tue service charge on your bill and besides that tip recommended. So that will add on easily 25% on your tap.

The food was excellent with the water side tables giving a great view out into the bay. Interesting to see the comings and goings of ships into the harbour and the large pontoon bridge opening and closing to accommodate the ships

If you want to eat a very good piece of Steak... you must try the tenderloin.. it is expensive but like all curacao... everything is expensive. The service is great. I guess is the best place in curacao to dinner with a great view of the see and punda area.

This place is magical! Very attentive and nice staff and excellent food. The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection. It's located upstairs in the Rif Fort and had a stunning open air view of the sea with an amazing view of the sunset. Come during sunset and have a perfect night out!

Food was acceptable. Very expensive. This is American cuisine with an amazing view. Get some drinks and avoid the meal.

Very expensive.service was slow. No one checked to see if we wanted anything else or to refill water. Food was ok .the biggest hit was the cornbread balls filled with shredded cheese and served with a hot sauce and a Russian dressing type sauce. The view was beautiful. Steak good flavor but very grizzly.

Lovely waterfront/old town view. Lousy food and untruthful service. I asked which fish on the menu was fresh, meaning not frozen. At first the waiter said only the salmon. When I didn't want that he said several fish were fresh, too. I ordered 'Drado.' Of course it was defrosted - it was dry and had that 'out of the freezer'... More

We tried this restaurant for lunch and we were not disappointed at all for the average quality found on the island. Food was tasty, well cooked and the view during our lunch was stunning. The caribbean was in front of us in all its splendor. It's worth a try!

Thank TheMaz73
