Staff didn't really make us feel welcome at this place. Food was ok to good. Ambience nice but it was empty. Plus, one of the servers had a cold and I wonder of that's why I have a cold now. A little pricey for what I got. I wouldn't go back.

My husband and I came few times to the restaurant, always seating outside and sipping good drink or wine with a pretty scenery around us and good music playing. It is nice to feel the sand under your toes and sit comfortably in a lounge chair. Around us bamboo accents, tropical outside decor. Once we had appetizers like beef carpaccio,... More

Thursday night "Sax on the Beach" was a highlight of this lovely restaurant. Drinks and meals were very reasonable, creative, tasty and fulfilling. Recommended, and we look forward to returning.

We had been here previous during the afternoon for snack/drink, which is a good day place to stop as the are right on the beach and have a nice little patio/beach area. The restaurant has a large menu with a variety of options, as... More

The food was ok. All the wrap appetizers were good. The Bang Bang chicken is hard to get past the presentation... It is very black. It tasted ok but not everyone liked it. We loved the music selection, but it was so loud that we had to yell to hear each other and we were the only ones in there... More

The food was quite good, and nice change from the typical cuisine. The place has a very cool modern tropical style. Took awhile to figure out that it was black sesame seeds that make the bang-bang chicken black!

We had dinner and were treated with amazingly fresh and uniquely prepared seafood. It was outstanding. Fusion flavor not overdone. A real treat. Kids all found plates they liked. This is a place the whole family can enjoy. Right on the beach makes it perfect. Reasonable prices as well. Going back soon.
