“Not the best choice - go somewhere else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

2 years ago I had fabulous carpaccio with black squid ink linguine in the center...delicious! Went back, looking forward to the same and it was still on the menu. Server explained they were just out of the black squid ink that night, manager said they hadn't had it in a while, didn't know when they would. Who knew the truth?! Plain linguine was just fair, capaccio was excellent, no offer to reduce price. Service was charming but slow as usual, no water available, great bread but had to request twice and then there was a surprise charge. Will not go back. Nearby Augusto's much better.

“indeed average.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Actually we went for the music: Juni Juliet, but he wasn't playing that night. Which was a pity because now we had average music AND poor dinner. Had to wait a long time for drinks being served, which was strange because there was a lot of personnel walking around. The food was poor to average: everything tastes well when you put a lot of cheese on it (fajitas). The environment is nice.

“Great and relaxed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I usualy go to Cabana beach if i want some time to relax. The restaurant has a swanky, modern, lounge-like vibe. I enjoyed it to talk busines over some drinks. On fridays there's a pianoman playing and singing, which is also a great mood setter.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed in an apartment next to Cabana. We had many of their drinks from their beach service and ate dinner there one night. The drinks were well-made and the food was good. The restaurant has a swanky, modern, lounge-like vibe. We enjoyed!

“Don't go there for dinner!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner several times. The place is beautiful, nice people, good atmosphere and nice music. The food however is terrible. Beef fajitas comes almost without beef. Union fajitas is a better name. Stroganoff misses the specific stroganoff flavor. The risotto is made with garlic creamcheese, not really something to present in a restaurant. And we also eat better ribs at Zanzibar or The Ribs Factory. We tried the restaurant several times, to check if we possible were wrong, or the cook had a bad day, or whatever.....but no, the restaurant is a huge disappointment.
So, for us no more dinner at Cabana, we go there for a drink at the bar and sometimes some moves on the dancefloor.
