We picked it for the view and the food was excellent. It is at the beach of palmar. A bit expensive but still worth! Great coctails

Rude staff. Bad food. Never had such an awful experience to the point where I've been compelled to write a review about it. There was no interest in my feedback - they couldn't have tried to get rid of us more quickly. Utterly disgraceful - why they are running a restaurant I don't know. Avoid at all costs.

The wait staff was rude throughout our dining experience. After asking about items we saw advertised at the door, we were given dirty looks and handed a second (less pricey?) menu. We waited well over an hour for our food, which was served with french fries that must have been sitting around for hours judging by their temperature. We let... More

It was a beautiful setting. My friend and I settled there for a bite to eat after a long day of ambling around. We watched the sun's light slowly fade away as dusk started to fall upon us. It was a scene befitting a poet.... ... until the waiter came over. He completely and unapologetically dashed the moment by insisting... More

If you like getting the cold shoulder served up with a large helping of homophobic bigotry then this is the place for you! Avoid at all costs.

This was not what it was cracked up to be. Service was slow, staff were disinterested and the food was very mediocre. We will not be recommending this place.

Staff are very rude and abrasive like sandpaper to the bottom. Not recommended. Any nice people from Niceville or surrounds, stay away.

After reading pretty mixed reviews about this place, I was hoping that I was in for a treat, how sorely disappointed was I, and I have eaten in some pretty god awful places in the past and am not that hard to impress. After first arriving and after a considerably long wait to be seated, I was constantly ignored by... More

The food was bland and disgusting, just like the attitude and behavior of the staff. You will not be made to feel welcome if the staff do not approve of you.

I've never written a negative review previously but felt compelled. I'm not sure if it was due to the mild comment about cold chips, or commenting that the glass shattered in my mouth, but we received the most incredible abuse from the staff here. Having already paid the bill we were accused of trying to 'steal' 4 coffees. We then... More
