We came here before Christmas for brunch after visiting the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Craft Fair (also excellent!) We had Eggs Benny (traditional) and it was some of the best hollandaise I've eaten... super rich and creamy. The view will knock your eyeballs out. It's true that the decor could use a face-lift but who's looking at the carpet when you... More

For our wedding anniversary we enjoyed a noon time meal with family and friends. The appys were tasty, even a discerning friend was impressed. The wait staff were efficient and friendly. The view added to the ambiance immensely. Each and everyone of us enjoyed our meals.

We were staying at the hotel and decided to give the restaurant a try. We ordered the chicken and brie sandwich and the quesidilla. Both items were presented very nicely and tasted really good. We saw some of the other food that was coming out and it looked great to. It is a nice quiet atmosphere and the view over... More

Not a bad choice of foods and reasonable prices. Fast service and some great views to be had if you pick a window table

Tranquil setting overlooking the ocean. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. My favourite spot for breakfast. I will have to try lunch and dinner some time.

I've tried, tried again, and tried again. I just can't get past the slow service, the lack of alcoholic drinks (no bartender 2 times and server didn't know how to make our requests). Every time I ask for a mojito and every time I'm told they don't have the ingredients; even though there is a bar located on the premises.... More

We tried to come for dinner but they were full and had a wait list. Bus tours stop here. We persevered and came back for breakfast. It was the view that was the draw, high over the little bay it is a spectacular place to dine, even if the room and decor needs a little refreshing. Our breakfast was good.... More
