We were a large group (3 families, lots of kids) in a "fancy" restaurant. The staff was great, EXTREMELY accommodating, food was excellent. Our best night of vacation. Parents win a fantastic meal, kids win being treated well and not dreaded. xoxo

Saturday evening dinner at the much publicised Bear Foot Bistro was a delightful experience. We opted not to go for the full tasting menu rather the a la Carte with classic choices. We both chose the Beef Tenerloin which was not only prepared and presented...More
