We decided to have a nice lunch before going up to the top of the mountain. They had a snack bar up there but we wanted more than a snack. We ordered a beer and a cheese plate, along with a pizza that we could share between the 3 of us. The cheese plate came, no complaints about the cheese,... More

Our last night we had dinner and again our waitress was the same as lunch and very attentive and professional. The view is great, the food and wine were... More

We just stopped at the hotel for lunch. We just had some chowder (great), calamari (very good), and the charcuterie (excellent) with some tea and soft drinks. The bill ran about $40 which is pricey but given the quality of the food that surroundings it was worth it. It was a bit weird in that we were the only people... More

Very good food - reasonable prices, decent wine selection warm and happy wait staff. We managed breakfast, lunch and dinner here and were not disappointed at all. Decent bar area for the adults when the kids were gone !

My family of 5 enjoyed dinner here during our land portion of our land/cruise tour July 3rd through Royal Caribbean. My steak was bloody even though I ordered it medium but I have to say I have never been treated so apologetically when having to send back my meal. The waitress, bartender and manager all apologized to me. The manager... More

Had lunch and dinner here and have to say it was yummy. The salmon salad was fresh and the pasta was lovely too. Lovely waitresses who were all friendly. If you don't fancy going to far afield then stay and eat at the resort.

A-Bar became our meeting place. There is a great table in front of a large window that we loved. Try the cheese plate. It is phenomenal. We ate burgers there for lunch one day and they were gigantic and delicious. Service is friendly and professional.

It's a pretty standard bar and grill type restaurant. The service was pretty slow and not all that friendly. The food was just ok. The drive there was beautiful however.
