Went went to Maritimo's (new name) for dinner. We had been for a walk along the beach front promenade so entered from the beach-side entrance. A sign said "wait to be seated" so we did. After non of the milling staff even glancing in our direction, we ambled over to an empty table and sat down. Sometime later, a waiter approached us and brought the cocktail menu (extensive and good wine list). Our drinks order was taken, and we were surprised when there was not stock of Sparletta cream soda - a restaurant soft-drink staple! Another waiter brought us rolls and ran off before we could even ask for cutlery. We managed to flag a waiter down, to bring us cutlery and the food menu. The menu had quite good options and we chose a few dishes. There appears to be a weird electronic ordering system which only one person knows how to use, so we had to wait a while. We assume it was the manager who asked if we were ok, and hurried the order along. When the food was bought to the table, the barbecue chicken wings were raw near the bone, so we asked for them to be replaced. This was done amidst much apology etc. The rest of the food was ok. Our major issue besides the food was the poor management - there were a number of inconsistent servers who each tried hard, but all ran in different directions. Nice location, but I would definitely not recommend this place.

for many yrs a particularly good place for fish dishes - unfortunately no longer granted. Food quality as well as services dropped in comparison with previous yrs experiences.

This restaurant is on the Cabana Beach Resort site and has a good selection of food - including 3 course set price meals. There are two verandas outside, one has just been completed, so you can sit overlooking the sea.
