• The manager gave us an extremely hard time about transportation back to our hotel and were very inconsiderate and rude. The owner was aware but left without talking with us or resolving the problem.
• The food was average.
• The atmosphere was below average. The restaurant is in a remote location. Especially not recommended for families. There were mosquitos and no air conditioning.
• Customer service was absolutely horrible. We were stuck for 20 minutes afraid and concerned that we were at risk of possible harm especially because we had 2 young children (7 and 12) with us.

We would *not* recommend this place at all!

we were here for our 10th anniversary for dinner and the atmosphere was great. The food was good (not great) and the service was not very good (drinks were not refilled, etc.). But dessert was great and again, the atmosphere was fantastic.

We simply loved this restaurant- The food was excellent (Pepper Shrimp, Lobster, Shrimp Pasta, Molten Cake). View of the city lights and the candlelit table makes for a wonderful dining experience. Staff was great and extremely attentive.

If you are staying in Mo Bay I have to say you must go to this restaurant. Get out of your resort, stay away from the "hip strip", this is the place to have a wonderful dinner in an amazing setting. My wife and I were in Mo Bay for 2 nights, we ate at this restaurant both nights. We live in NJ and eat in Manhattan frequently, the food here is top top quality. The smoked Marlin dip, the al dente pasta, the chocolate souffle, it's all great. This is not a rice, peas and jerk something place, it's much more exquisite. The hotels want you to stay there, get out and enjoy the best restaurant in the area. I never say yes to being contacted by travelers about my experience but this place is so unique I said yes. Contact me if you would like more info.
