Gourmet foods, freshly made with local ingredients. The fruits are incredible! We had fish made several ways and they were all incredible. We purchased wraps for our road trip the next day (one fish, one filafal), and they were superb!

Great food. Presentation was beautiful. Try the curry mahi mahi and the coconut flan with vanilla ice cream. Service impeccable.

As food lovers, we saw the menu at this place and couldn't wait to try the surf and surf. As we were staying at the hotel, we saved this until our last night. To sum up, it was overpriced, slow service and very average food.
