Attentive service, nice view, good food

Enjoyed a nice dinner - all you can eat pasta on Wednesday evening. The staff were very friendly and attentive, coming over often to make sure we were okay and our glasses were filled. Enjoyed a couple of drinks on the house, red wine and a nice glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. The salad... read more

my boyfriend and I stopped in here for a sunset dinner, I wish there was a better view of the beach, but the landscaping onsite is exquisite and provided for a beautiful background. The pond that the restaurant opens up on has beautiful black swans to enhance the already romantic ambiance. I really enjoyed my meal, the seafood linguine, but... More

Our family tried to have a relaxing day and started it with they're Sunday brunch. Food was good ,however my wife was insulted from a waiter that made loud comments(signing) about my wife's figure(behind) to his colleagues and so loud that the whole dinning room could hear. This waiter should be send to behavior sessions and be not allowed to... More

Like most restaurants in the Hyatt, they use them for all 3 meals. Our favorite was breakfast, a very large buffet and a made to order omelet station. Fresh squeezed local juice was my favorite treat in the mornings...it was pomegranate, then mango...super yummy!

We have been there twice. You really have to sit outdoors to get the whole experience. This place is in the Hyatt but it is built into the landscape outside which is kind of like a Jungle setting. Not cheesy like Rainforest cafe, but much more more than just a couple trees and a Koi pond. It is a very... More

I felt like I was eating Taco Bell while on the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. The food was downright awful and no where even in the realm of what should be allowed to be called Mexican food. Their salsa, no joke, tasted like ketchup. We should have walked out then. If you're a mexican restaurant and you can't manage salsa,... More

This was a very romantic dinner and the food was excellent. We sat at the edge of the pond and watched the swans swim by. My husband said that his filet was the best he's had in his life! Very pricey but worth it for a special dinner.
