We ate at the Oro restaurant in the Gem Suite Apartments (there is another one at Suite Life Apartments) and found it to be convenient when you first move in. You may be too tired or lazy to hunt around for food when you first arrive at the apartments, so the availability of this restaurant is good. The ambiance is... More

Hey, just got turned away at the gate of GEM Suites. I need to be a member before my husband and I can eat. The security guard was polite enough to welcome us to register inside but we were quite eager for food not paperwork. We were about to make it our new local. NOT.

Very good pizza, excellent service and a very nice place. A bit expencive. If you're a local you have to become a member of the club to enter the resturant, but when we explained that we're only tourists we didn't have to sign up to enter.

This is the second time I have taken my wife to this restaurant. The first time was last year during valentine's day. The service is 1st class, the place is very quiet and safe.
