Breakfast is best, but dinner is a close second

There is a larger variety of food for breakfast and all is prepared very well. The dinner menu needs to have a few ordinary selections added, instead of consisting of only specialized items.

We were seated in a lovely booth that provided a measure of privacy but also great views of the room and the outdoors beyond. Our waiter Benny was knowledgeable, gracious and very humorous. The cocktails were amazing, the skill of a great bartender at his finest. The food was outstanding, from soup to salad to entrees. The best scallops ever,... More

The decor is pleasing and the setting overlooking a lagoon filled with water birds is quite attractive. The service is friendly and professional. Unfortunately, the food at the breakfast buffet, while tasty was cold. Dinner the prior evening was disturbed by the location next to the large lounge lobby. It was filled with a noisy reception which made conversation at... More

I ate here while staying at the hotel - since there isn't much else around the area, it's an easy choice. However keep in mind that this is a high-end hotel... and a pricey restaurant. At the same time, it was delicious!

Fast service and great breakfast. It was busy in the morning but I got in and out very quickly. Huge selection of breakfast foods. Everyone should find something they like.

A bit stuffy and pricy. Not for kids. Service was good but I was scared the kids were going to be too loud or break things.

The Croque Monsieur was rich and delightful! Chicken fingers from the kids menu were perfect for my little guy.

I dined here once and had an overall good experience. I ordered duck and my partner had salmon: the duck was well cooked and seasoned, but the mash potato with it was totally tasteless and the same for the vegetable. The salmon and rice that came with it I was told were perfectly cooked and flavors well balanced. The staff... More
