“Nice view, affordable, ok food”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

We chose this restaurant based on a review from Fodors and were a bit disappointed. It is on the water with great views. It is packed in with a host of of other restaurants so you have your choice of where to eat. However, it reminded me of a strip mall of places to eat. However, the water view was very nice and open air seating. Prices were affordable in that we both had cocktails and dinner for around $80 USD but the food was average. It was sprinkling and our waitress was clearly annoyed by this which resulted with her wearing a rain slicker and darting in and out if she really had to attend to our needs.

“Beautiful views with good food”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

The most amazing views at this resturant! The food was good - not great - but really, just average.

We went early (about 6pm) and so had a choice of seats (there were 3 of us) so we sat at a table next to the rail looking directly onto the ocean. We had ordered one Octopus Vinaigrette, one seafood combo (mussels, shrimp, white fish), one meat platter (sausage, chicken, ribs and steak) and one pineapple shrimp. Our bill came to $108.27, which also included 4 coke's, one margarita and one Amstel Bright.

The waitstaff were warm and welcoming and service was quick. Would like to visit again for Lunch as the Lunch Menu looked nice also.

“Nice Coffee Stop and great oceanfront”
Reviewed April 16, 2012

We were treated very well and prices for our cappucino were great. Loved the oceanfront atmosphere and right on top of it. No problems and ambiance for a 10am coffee was great.

“Abysmal service, mediocre food, intimidating management”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

We went for this place because the place next door where the hotel had sent us seemed empty in comparison. WHAT A MISTAKE! The service was beyond horrible. Inexperienced and apathetic staff meant that we had to make the same orders (as simple as "water for everyone please") over and over again without anything happening. I guess the place was so busy because it takes 40 minutes for them to give you a glass of water when you ask for one!
The waitstaff completely screwed up the order, failed to serve some of us their food, said they would expedite the orders they forgot but meanwhile kept serving the same dish to other tables with our table's hungry friends just seeing them walk by while others at our table were already long done their meal. Totally unacceptable, and the food never even came in the end!
As an "apology" the angry female manager suggested she remove the dishes from our bill that never came. What the -bleep-? Those dishes never came, we did not get them, what kind of compensation is that? When we expressed our discontent in a polite manner and requested some form of compensation she threatened to call security.
Save your money, energy and appetite and EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE!!
Oh, and these people also own the place next door (The Grillking) so don't expect much from that place either!
