Firstly for me I must say the toilet paper covers were a highlight! We had a lovely afternoon stop for a cocktail then a dinner reservation later that night, and a second dinner a few days after that. Definitely the best food we have had on our entire holiday! We paid $40 for a bottle of New Zealand wine. Mains... More

The restaurant is set up above the resort so if you want to enjoy the view either go for lunch or an early dinner. The food is resort style and well executed. We had the sashimi platter which was fabulous although the wasabi sorbet was melting. The complimentary soursop sorbet, however, was perfect. Dessert was a highlight with a trio... More

We stayed at the resort and were not disappointed by the food served at the restaurant ... we even had the 5 course dinner on the beach which was great.

Breakfast was delicious with great complimentary fruit and freshly pressed fruit juice. We had a leisurely breakfast while admiring the beautiful view of the lagoon. Service was impeccable and they didn't mind us lingering on after service was concluded. Price was surprisingly not more expensive than the other cafes we have visited on the island.

The sashimi platter and the pork belly appetizers were delicious. But especially it was the Wagyu beef and Tuna that my wife and I loved best. Above all, Jordan Delgado's and James's attentive customer service was great.

Ordering of the food a bit odd. No notes taken and not sure if they 'got it'. The Food was very good though. One night a week there is a buffet and show, very good!

This restaurant is the most expensive that we found on the island but the food is amazing. The chef's special of Chicken Curry was especially good. Their Island Night on Wednesday (featuring traditional dance and music) also had an amazing buffet. If you attend (and you don't need to be staying at the resort to do so) try the brown,... More
