Have eaten at the restaurant upstairs and it was amazing! We tried the river cafe downstairs and it was the complete opposite experience. Utterly tasteless and uninspiring. Five of us ate different meals and not one was satisfactory. Will eat at the main restaurant again but never at the river cafe.

Its a nice place to hangout by the pool, but they could have more variety in there food. The few over the river and jungle is spectacular. Its a total no smoking area.

The food was great a relaxing restaurant with a great view over looking the pool and the jungle, We tried the hot stone salmon it was delicious. If you are staying at the hotel you can alternate from the main restaurant to the river café restaurant.
