Solid Casual Dining

Stopped here for lunch one day while staying at the resort. My Cuban sandwich was on point, tons of flavor and perfectly toasted bread. My bf's jerk chicken sandwich was less enjoyable- really dry.

We ate here the first night of our vacation. The restaurant is right on the water in the marina. We had a party of eight kids and adults. The adults all had the dorado with mango salsa, the fish was totally overcooked. My daughter had chicken tenders and they were awful she wouldn't eat them. The only thing that was... More

We stopped here twice during our stay, both times just for drinks. The first time the waitress was a little rude and it took a while to get our order of 2 glasses of wine. The second time no one would even wait on us. They were busy, but all of the staff had their backs to the people at... More

Average and pricey. Wait staff not very personable or attentive. Churrasco and rice/beans delicious. Drink sizes are skimpy. Nice view after being on Palomino Island. Quick and easy dining experience.

Look, you're hungry, you want a drink. I get it. They serve food here. And to some extent, it's eatable. But if you wanted a meal that didnt make you feel gross afterwords, this isn't the place.

We were an palomino island and stop at ballyhoo. Everything was good, a nice evening with my love. The food was excellent and the service was great. The amazing view creates a perfect spot to relax while having a drink. Definitely worth the price.

We visited the bar a few times since we where staying the marina area. It was very nice and the food was decent. It would have been better if they had more local dishes.
