Good food - amazing entertainment

I recommend bringing a family to this restaurant. The kids ate a buffet that was reasonably priced and had a few different options which makes a great concept for children who are picky eaters. The live music in the lounge and the great service topped off a good meal. Live music is from... read more

This is not a family restaurant as it is formal and expensive. The present Chef is excellent, and the food is very good. Wine selections are fine. Deserts are very artistic and excellent.

We did small plates for dinner. Breakfast was fab also. Fantastic service, too. Hate to mention it, but the window tables are bothered by flies. A true bummer in a 5-star restaurant.

This restaurant is great for the kids with the kid buffet and while service is great as with most of the resort the food is only ok and would be more palatable at lower prices.

We opted to have dinner inside rather than outside, although this restaurant features a gorgeous view of the golf course along with fire pits and tiki torches. There's lot of music playing and I think we just wanted to have a quiet dinner. Inside the atmosphere is muted which was fine for us. We ordered the paella along with a... More

What a way to spend a evening..... gorgeous views, setting perfect with small bonfires, tiki lamps, and a great live band! The service was excellent and the food was well executed. It was a little pricey but a great evening, left fully satisfied!

We were told the band was great and it was. Sorry, can't remember the name, a Mr. Stanley King. Awesome. The service and food was terrible and extremely expensive. No one in our group ate their meal. The drinks are all $12.00 even wine. I do not recommend eating there but the surroundings are gorgeous and the atmosphere lovely. Just... More

Two girls for the entire outside and they were run off their feet. We sat down at a dirty table thatwas never cleaned up the entire evening. We moved the prevous diners napkins, glasses... More
