To being our evening at Te Honu Iti, the driver showed up 15 mins late (every excursion we did the drivers were promptly on time), and without so much as an apology or even a how are you, we hoped in the van and were off. The driver seemed to be very inconvienced that he had to make the trip to the Hilton, and as the drive began, it finished without a welcome to entice us in. The ambiance of the restaurant was what you would expect to find on a small island, and exactly what my wife and I were looking for, in a more cultural experience than resort food. The waiter had the same demeanor as the driver, and did not seemed to be pleased that he had to work this particular Friday evening, simply dropping the menus on the table and walking away. The food was ok, nothing spectacular, and the price seemed to be on par with everything else on the island. Through the meal, the waiter seemed to be completely disinterested in showing the patrons a good time (outside of throwing some bait in the water to attract fish and rays). The meal ended as it had begun, with a disinterested staff watching us leave. The drive back to the Hilton was the most exciting part of the evening, as the driver swerved across the road as he undid his seatbelt to answer his cell phone, and listening to a dog yelp who was unfortunately sleeping on the roads edge (we aren't exactly sure if he hit the dog or not). It all ended as we let ourselves out of the van and watched from a distance as 2 more misfortunate souls hoped in.
