We had checked this out on the Internet and Ron at the Rio Villa Beach Resort confirmed that it was one of the best places in the area.
A very impressive room and excellent, friendly staff - good ratio of staff to customers.
The food was cooked and presented to the highest standard. We both had the Halibut and it was outstanding. Starters of soup 'of the day' and tartare were lovely as were the puddings of lemon tart and Mocha Mouse.
Extensive wine list catering for all pockets and tastes - with many local wines - as you would expect. A bottle of the Moshin Pinot Noir at $48 went down very well as did the Korbel Rose 'champagne' aperitif.
Warm atmosphere with mixed clientele - all dressed 'smart - casual' as requested by the management - so don't turn up in a bikini or 'tatty' jeans. Having made the comment about attire - the place is certainly NOT stuffy.
We would certainly suggest a visit and it will be top of our list should we return to the area.
