Again the Pelican Hill Resort has outdone itself with the slightly more casual sister restaurant to the Pelican Grill. The only thing that keeps the Coliseum from being a more formal spot is the gorgeous setting aside the circular pool below. Dining while resort guests are tanning on the lounges keeps it casual. But the food, presentation and service aren't slacking in any way. Outstanding salads, fish tacos, sandwiches.. and you must try the parmesan parsley french fries. Wicked. Keep in mind the portions are huge here.. sharing plates, particularly if you order some of those fries, will do the trick if you share tastes. But your waiter is happy to box up any leftovers, which we then ate for dinner. For dessert, try the half-baked, warm chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream sandwich.. with a table full of people. It's rich! While not inexpensive, it's actually quite reasonable, considering the quality and the overall experience. I love to have lunch at the Coliseum.. then take a dip in the pool to exercise off the calories after my food has digested.
