Not the best

You're definitely paying for the location here. The food was very average, however the service was fast and efficient. The beach is beautiful white sand & the sea an amazing colour. There are decent facilities for changing etc & the snorkelling is quite good but you have to swim quite a long way... read more

We had a very inattentive server, I think this is important to note, since all the other reviews rave about great service. There were only 5 tables and still we barely saw our waiter, in fact we almost left before order because it had taken so long. I ordered the special, seabass in shrimp sauce, I would recommend that.

So we got here at about 9pm, asked for appetizers until we could figure out on the following dish. The waiter tell us that the kitchen will close at 10...

This is a large restaurant which caters mainly for the in house resort guests. The stuff is very nice and caring and the restaurant is very clean and tidy. We ordered a filet of marlin and one of swordfish and were quite disappointed with the taste.The fish tasted quite "fishy" which usually reflects a low quality or low freshness and... More

We ate here a few times and the food was great every time. They have a good selection of seafood and sauces to go with them. The staff there is fantastic, always with a smile.
