We ate here once during our stay at the Grand Hyatt. The selections were good and the food very nicely presented. Views of the gardens and ocean are spectacular.

The menu is very varied, so it is a good place to go with your family. My husband and I sat by the windows, and had a very pleasant lunch.

Perfect spot for lunch everyday at the pool. I still crave their Cantonese salad all the time! A bit expensive but that's to be expected at a resort like this.
