We were there twice during our vacation. The atmosphere is very nice, feels very luxury to be able to sit in the sand by the water, while having dinner. The service is a bit uneven. First time we had to wait a lot for our waitress to attend to us, second time we had good service. The food is ok,... More

This place is right near our hotel and the food was magnificent. It is not a cheap place to eat though so you are prepared. The food was worth the price and ambiance was great. We had a table right on the water where the tides comes in. Essentially you are dining in the surf. They have racks for your... More

Ambiance was very nice, food was delicious. Reservations require re-confirmation. Dig your feet in the sand or in the water as you dine by the beach and catch the sunset.

The setting, the service and the food completes a memorable night out. We enjoyed our dinner and a member of our party who is a Vegan also was satisfied.

This is a must go to for dinner. The food was amazing.. there was 6 of us and we had a mix of seafood and steak and it was all awesome. You get to sit by the water and when it is high tide, your feet will b in the water a little bit.. then you get a beautiful shot... More

I'll cut to the chase. The food for me was somewhat average - not in line with pricing. It needs to be amazing to justify the cost. However, the artichoke warm goat cheese appetizer was the hit of the night! The service was very good but not over the top. The prices are very high - even higher than New... More

This restaurant is located right on the shore of a protected bay. They have underwater lighting that attracts marine life in the evening. Dinner was very good and staff was all very friendly. Definately would go again.
