I have visited Tubla twice, both times with ravenous groups of kids and adults. This time, when we walked in, they immediately got our drink order and then brought a complimentary flatbread shaped like a mouse with eyes, etc for the kids to nosh on while we contemplated ordering. All was delicious but I have a special shoutout for the... More

The residence club where we were staying called ahead and made a reservation for our family. Our reservations were for 7:30 p.m. Our boat cruise tour was late getting us back, so we were 12 minutes late for our reservation. The restaurant was completely dark and the gate to the parking lot closed tight when we arrived. I don't believe... More
