Not sure why it didn't live up to our expectations this time. Our memories from our last visit made it a must return to place. The food was ok, nothing special staff helpful, the best part this time was the fish in the aquarium. I feel the menu change from our last visit has not been an improvement in our... More

We booked a lunch reservation at 180 days out to ensure we could dine here. What a lovely place. We were sated right next to the giant aquarium whIch had all types of sea life. Hubby and daughter enjoyed spotting the different types of sea life. Food was amazing, I and steak and cheddar mash. I would go there again... More

Huge fish tank, ask for a seat at the tank side, back row view isn't great. Food is very good, mahi mahi was very enjoyable and flaked away easily. The shrimp skewer was also a family favourite as well. Nice pleasant atmosphere. Jack Daniels dessert was full of flavour, but the caramel cheescake was very heavy and too rich for... More

Tiny portions tasteless food. We have been in Florida 2 and half weeks and this is by far our worse meal, we sent back 2 of our parties plates and all the veg cause it wasn't hot enough or cooked for the veg. The only reason I gave it a star was for the view which was an amazing tank.... More

It always seems madness after checking in and waiting for your table but so worth it. We sat towards back but gave you full view of all the aquarium. Loved the mahi mahi and the steak for the nine year old, again a restaurant with good options for children. The puddings... Chocolate wave and the Bailey's and Jack Daniel cheescake.... More

My family and I (party of 8) dined last July at The Coral Reef Restaurant. We made reservations about 6 months ahead of time, since our previous visit we were not lucky to get a reservation. Upon arrival we enjoyed the decor it is beautiful, very in tune with the "theme". We got a great seating, a booth area right... More

Walking into this restaurant is breathtaking; the theming starts as soon as you walk through the seahorse-handled doors. The walls are internally lit and the floors are even themed! We had a bit of a wait but the staff was very welcoming and friendly as we waited. We were sat pretty close to the large aquarium wall, so the view... More

The decor is a late dated but the aquarium view is great. The food was the best we had tasted on our holiday. The service was excellent until waiting for the bill. We waited more than 8 minutes whilst our server was chatting with a nearby table. I know it was over 8 minutes as that was the time elapsed... More
