The restaurant was very nice, service excellent and food amazing. My husband and I shared a large steak which was cooked to perfection. It was our friends anniversary so the waiter brought the table an amazing piece of complimentary fresh made carrot cake.

We’re so happy we chose Chef Michael’s for dinner on our final night at Cheeca Lodge! It’s an easy walk from the resort and so worth it! Between the three of us, we had steak, lamb chops and a fish dish that was to die...More
