we ate three times at this restaurant, so we cannot say this is a bad place. It is a good place, with a chef/owner (Leonardo) trying hard to please. But prices are about 35-50% higher than most other places in town while the food is slightly above average. If not for the splendid view of the harbor and sunset on a dock, we would give this place a one-to-two star rating, given an unfavorable price mix and slow service.
what we find unacceptable though is the continuous music being piped around. We understand that some people like music around them or at least do not dislike it. In our case, we went to this place to eat and chat, not to be overwhelmed by heathily-rhythmed music. on our last day, at lunch inside the restaurant (not on the dock) we complained three times to the waiter that the music was too loud to our taste. Every time, the music was lowered for a few minutes only to creep back to its previous level. The music was heavy disco, with jolting sequences, something that literally made it a strain on us to just talk among us. We later came to understand that the owner's sister runs the adjacent bar and kept putting the volume back up. Again the issue was in the indoor restaurant, less on the dock.
We believe that a restaurant that aspires to deliver a superior dinner experience and charges elevated prices should accommodate diners' request for control of blaring music. we also believe that a restaurant with premium prices should decide if it is a relaxing place or a loud bar.
