The location is excellent, watching out to sea or looking at the sunset whilst enjoying the breeze is wonderful. The food was expensive, especially the starters. The tuna salad was double price what I had been paying and for tinned tuna and mayo - not what I was expecting at all. The Ribs someone had was much better value.

We had dinner here kinda last minute as we were walking around downtown Willemstad. We made reservations but ended up not really needing them. They were busy but had plenty of room to accommodate us. The food was very good, and the owners stopping by to ask how we were doing added a nice touch. I would highly recommend stopping... More

This restaurant is located on top of the bay and sea facing wall of the old Rif Fortress. This location gives the visitor a nice breeze with a spectacular view. The Rif Fortress itself gives you a perfect photo opportunity, you can create many interesting compositions with the sea, Saint Anna bay, Emma bridge, perhaps a passing ship and the... More

Large portions of super yummy food. I had ribs and my husband had steak. Very satisfied. The view is amazing overlooking the shops in Punda. The sound of the waves was mesmerizing. Nice breeze, cargo ships passing through- all of which make for a lovely evening. No rush, just enjoy.

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.
