The reason I say pretty good and not excellent is the value. The appetizers are great, the main courses good but not great. The dover sole (expensive) needed more lemon and was not worth $55. I also thought the Halibut was overpriced. The pasta was also good but not great. I would probably recommend going with the meat dishes. The... More

This is a magical place. We sat on the terrace and enjoyed an amazing sunset. First, the grounds are nothing less than perfect. Rose bushes, perfectly manicured hedges, well maintained pathways, etc. the restaurant is equally cared for. The food is excellent and the service is attentive. The prices are actually less than I expected for the quality and overall... More

The view over the pool and down towards the golf course/sea is truly breathtaking. The food itself, is not.

No more fresh orchids, no trio of fresh white rosebuds in crystal vases on each table. Now there are wrinkled tablecloths, and cheaper menus that the original beautiful ostrich skin (?) ones. these just are some of the subtle cutbacks in quality. New tables for four have been crammed in between the existing large semicircular booths, which means there will... More

Wow this place is amazing! They even make their own pasta. The general manager (Derek) super friendly very helpful and really knew how to run the place. My friend had the steak and I had the pasta. We walked out ten pounds happier! We will be coming back

Where to begin- I have been going since the beginning and I USED TO LOVE THIS PLACE! It is unrecognizable from where it started! I can't believe that someone would change this restaurant/resort into what it has become- terrible food, flip flops, t- shirts, shorts, kids, crowded area, etc. PIZZA and spaghetti on the menu/at the "fine dining resturant"- are...

really the appetizers at the Olive Garden are more flavorful and enjoyable. This place was a disappointment. However the mixed drinks were very good. Maybe the main course offerings are better but judging from the appetizers it's highly unlikely I would return here unless I was entertaining for business and wanted the view.
