I had an amazing spinach salad with a poached egg. I followed that with the petit filet which has a small cut of ribs on top (ribs... read more

I keep hearing this restaurant is good so I continue to go back only to be disappointed with the food and the service. It is located in a fabulous resort…If nothing else, take time to walk around and study the architecture and interiors….it is worth a look see. Just one person's opinion based on several experiences.

We are staying at the Royal Palms Resort and Spa that houses this restaurant. The staff are knowledgable and wonderful. The food comes from great ingredients.
