“Maxie13”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This restaurant is beautiful. A beautiful bird lived on the hill inside and we took pictures and dined in front of a waterfall! However, the food was mediocre at best (lambchops and steak tough, potatoes from a box, disappointing conch dish). Go and look but don't eat there.

“Lovely place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Beautiful restaurant surrounded by waterfalls. Buffet restaurant where you can eat as much as you like. A nice change to eating in the hotel

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We had a prebooked large group for a pre wedding day super. The atmosphere and quality of food were both excellent. The took care of the group and catered to several different requests. It is a wonderful setting and would recommend it to anyone for small or large group outings.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We took a cab from our resort which is afpproximately 30 minutes to restaurant. The cab ride cost $80 plus a tip which we felt was very high. The lobster thermidor and snapper escoveitch were excellent. A bit pricey but worth it.
We were hoping to sit at a table near the natural falls but it was raining and had to sit at a table on the covered deck. We were glad we chose the restaurant and would recommend it for a special occasion.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

This is a wonderful place to have dinner. We were 1 of 3 tables taken in the whole restaurant. The food was great and the scenery was second to none. The staff was very attentive and the facilities were clean. I would definitely go back and recommend this place for a romantic dinner for two. This place truly is right at the foot of the falls!
