We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel and it was incredible! Great service, excellent food and an altogether wonderful experience. At the end of our dinner, we got rose petals and roses made from the napkins. A totally delightful experience!

Visited with a group from work food was and service was good but nothing that really stood out. Good place for larger groups and depending on the seats can have a really great view over the water.
