“Excellent sea food, though a bit expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Salamandas is a bit expensive and unfortunately does not have any air con (spite the fan, and open doors, it gets warm and a bit sweaty!).

However, the food was tasty, and fresh! we had the pan seared Mahi mahi (with wine glazed potatoes and garlic tomato creame) - it was yummy!

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The place is very nice but the food was not great. It was served within 10 minutes. The chicken was dry and cold served. Although the tasted was good but we never didn't tried for a second time. The staff was very friendly.

“Liked the food at sunshine better!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

I dined here once for dinner and once ordered from their restaurant which delivered around the pool. The pizza ordered around the pool area was overcooked and at dinner time the garlic bread was soogy and not crisp. I had Blue Marlin also for dinner with veges which was quite nice.
