Excellent food, service and view. Haven’t been in a while. Called in advance for Sunday reservations because they said they can be busy and they definitely were. I can see why! Good time with family and friends visiting!

We had a large group for lunch at Cafe O Lei at the Dunes. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The food was great. We ordered the fried green beans and calamari as appetizers. Everyone enjoyed their lunch.
