Food and price are so-so, but location and ocean view are great if you are a hotel guest. Hotel is very nice, great beach location and friendly staff

This restaurant was recently remodeled and looks very nice. The views are fantastic. Our family had 2 dinners and a breakfast there. The food was good overall.

The Best Western Beach Resort's hotel restaurant is good...not great, but when you hike all day, or shop all day, or kayak all day and then come back to this terrific hotel....it is nice that it is there.

The pork tenderloins were dry, the potatoes uninspired. The Key Lime Pie delicious. The presentations were nice, but I wonder if the chef is just past her/his prime.

We had the fried calamari to start... it was so good that we ordered another... we never got around to an entry. Very fresh and fried with leeks and banana peppers, a first for us... wonderful!

Wonderful presentation... cooked to perfection. Seabass fabulous. Joaquin served us and gave us several choices of what we should eat and he was right on the money! We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and his service. The plate was very eye appealing as the chef made it very appetizing! We would eat there again!
