We have just experienced 12 days of excellent service being provided by the first class staff. Great food available during the day for either lunch or dinner, even snacks when required and superb cocktails. The staff are extremely friendly and quickly get to know your particular likes. The view of the Lagoon from the main deck is superb.

We ate here twice during our 7 nights on the island. First night as we arrived late and didn’t want to venture out again, and second time as we’d been out all day and were tired. The food was fine, fresh and tasty. Much smaller portions than most other places we tried on the island for things like a fish sandwich. We would have tried somewhere else in the resort if there’d been other choices but both restaurant areas AND the restaurant next door in the adults only Sanctuary resort all had the exact same menu.
Cocktails a fairly standard price for most places on the island at $15-16 each.
