Had a wonderful meal of chateaubriand for two, cooked tableside. Most steaks and fillets are cooked to order right in front of you. The dish came with a parsnip and carrot puree, as well as grilled fresh vegetables. Beautiful atmosphere.

Resort casual - slacks, nice shirt.. no need to be fancy. If you want to dress up you can as well and you won't feel out of place.
