Amazing brunch!

My friends and I came here New Year's day for the brunch buffet and ate ourselves silly. We had a table by the window overlooking the golf course and ocean and the food was really well prepared, fresh and tasty. My one complaint was that they could have had some fresh grained breads, but maybe I... read more

WINDOWS TO THE OCEAN....sweeping views of the rugged coastline with a view of the sunrise, an explosion of color. We took a look at the breakfast buffet but ended up ordering off the menu. The winner of the morning were the Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes with Citrus Honey Maple Syrup. Does that sound like perfection, or what? Well we all four... More

Okay it cost an arm and a leg but the food was great. It's a bit of a production line, but even with all the people the waiter made us feel very accommodated. Because of the business of the place, they were slow to recognize that we had been seated, but once I got up and asked for a waiter,... More

I had an amazing time at Navio. Our waiter, Aaron was amazing. The food, out of this world. My friend and I both enjoyed our dinner, I had a pan roasted duck breast, DELICIOUS, and my friend had their filet mignon which was also yummy. Also took home a bottle of Malbec.

We went for dinner. We made the decision when we sat down to try to stay with ingredients that were as local as possible. We began with cuttle fish prepared in a spicy Pad Thai style. The flavors leaned towards comfort food. Although the preparation was a little on the sweet side it was cut by the chili peppers. The... More
