“Wonderful Restaurant w/ a nice view”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Don't shy away just because this restaurant is located in a hotel. We had a great meal! Sushi, salad, filet, dessert...everything was delicious. We were with a group of 8 and the service was fantastic. Everyone was very happy with their meal. Nice atmosphere with a view. We ate at the bar on another night and their bar menu is great too!!!

“Dinner with a view”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

At Caretta you can expect an upscale atmosphere, fine dining and excellent service. We had one of the front tables with an outstanding view. Lance, our waiter, provided excellent service. Overall a wonderful evening out. The sushi here was excellent we tried three rolls and all were delectable. My only complaint would be that a restaurant located in a resort that caters to family's it doesn't offer many choices for kids or (younger teens) on their dining room menu.

“Great dinner, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner outside while watching a beautiful Florida sunset. Service was really great. Food was good. Definitely would go back. Had a steak which was juicy, perfectly cooked and tasty but not the best I've had...still was good. My wife had fish (can't remember exactly what kind) and she loved it.

Make a reservation, the sand pearl has valet so don't worry about parking (free when you eat there) and if your not staying at the Sand Pearl take a walk and enjoy the shops after dinner then pick your car up from the valet after you get your shopping in...parking near the strip of shops on Mandalay Ave is practically impossible.
