Sent a registered letter to the manager for the poor service we had on April13, 2013. Never heard from anyone! It was my mother's 90th birthday and the service was awful. The waiter literally was grabbing my husband's appetizer when there were more oysters on the plate! No one asked if we wanted coffee. Would never go back and the bill for 6 people was $500.00.

Family of 5 had Sunday brunch here and it was wonderful. Includes unlimited mimosas or straight prosecco. The variety and quality of the food was what made it standout - included oysters, sushi, shrimp, salads, halibut, strip loin as well as all the usual breakfast and side items, and of course dessert. My personal fovourites were the little duck pastries and the lemon tarts. Was unsure of making the reservation in advance as couldn't find the price on their website but it was probably the best value of our whole trip to the US ($40 per adult in Oct 2013). Dining room also has a nice view of the beach. Highly recommended.

Caretta is no ordinary hotel restaurant. It is first-class dining in beautiful surroundings complementing the Gulf view. The menu has enough variety, there is a selection of wines by the glass, and the food was excellent. Our waitress was charming, but more importantly knowledgeable and efficient.

This restaurant offers floor to ceiling windows with views of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Eating here at sunset is truly a show of mother nature's beauty complimented with the freshest food served in beautiful presentations and a great wine list. The service is always friendly and impeccable and this is one of the great places to dine in the Tampa Bay Area. Caretta's is located in The Sandpearl Resort which is also one of the most amazing hotels in the area and certainly on par if not exceeding Ritz Carlton in all ways.
