I enjoyed the Mediterranean Salad w/ Shrimp so much that I had it 3 days in a row. The nachos were also good but I can't comment on the rest of the food menu. I'd recommend the frozen drinks (daiquiri, pina colada, etc.) but would stay away from the non-frozen 'ice' drinks (for example, Mojitos) as we could barely taste... More

My girlfriend and I went to the Intercontinental hotel and had some lunch right on the beach at the Ciao Restaurant. Service could have been better but the food and the views were wonderful. We split the Lamb Pita, and had a few drinks, and really enjoyed it.

Great location with friendly service and great food and drinks. The frozen mojitos are amazing as are the chicken quesadillas, the nachos and the French fries supreme. All great. When we stay at the IC we eat here every day.

Overall, I found this restaurant to be average. I would give it 3.5 stars if it allowed. The drinks and service were excellent, but my wife and I found the food to be just average. I found the prices to be reasonable for a resort. We visited during dinner service at sunset. That alone is worth the price of the... More
