Very nice restaurant that served good quality food at a reasonable cost. Service was good. Interestingly we were seated amongst mostly couples and felt we couldnt relax having a child with us.

Dined here with my husband. Ordered the NZ steak. Came with seafood and a huge bowl of salad. Very filling and absolutely delicious. Couldn't fit dessert in. Very reasonably priced. Full bar service. Definitely recommend.

Great Ribeye Steak and Marlin. Nice self-serve salad bar. Simple and unpretentious. Short walk from nearby resorts. Worth the visit. We'll be back next visit.
