The sunset view at this restaurant is priceless! The food was really good and the staff was fast and helpful with the group of 12 that we were with that night. There was a crock in the water that we could see as we had dinner there. They can accommodate a large or small group.

The ambience is fantastic, the service was over the top great, and the food was very enjoyable! We went as 5 for a reservation, was early but they still seated us and served us right away, cannot say enough about how great this experience was! My daughter got the strawberry flambé for dessert which was prepared right at our table!... More

Our group went to dinner here a couple times while on our vacation and each time we were impressed with the food and ambiance. Definitely would recommend eating here. The food is fresh and the staff very attentive. The view is beautiful and worth visiting here.

Family went out to dinner here and truly enjoyed the outing. Dinner portions were fair and the drinks were average but the food was impressive and the view could not be beat. Only downside was the mosquitoes but hostess helped with a bug spray on the open deck. Quite kind...

I have been to this restaurant 3 times now. It is getting better as time goes on. Stick with the fish if you go!! They still have work to do when it comes to any meat. Also, try to get a table on the back deck for the sunset and to see the crocodile in the lagoon. The atmosphere is... More

We ate there twice because the food was better than at the resort. While we thought our food was delicious, a couple people in our group didn't care for the shrimp stuffed crab.

Its hard to give it more than a 3 star when there are so many other great choices. The food is good, the service is too. But this this is definitely a favorite of the Royal Resorts, Its good its inexpensive & its worth it, its not fine dining.

Service was lackluster at best and food was not good. Very disappointed. Staff acted like they could have cared less that you were there.
