This used to be our favorite restaurant on the beach. Great food/ entertainment with a middle eastern flair. But no more. The music is generic and so loud you can't have a conversation. Ruined one get together. Now, we go a few doors down to H2O and listen to the music from Cafe Del Mar at a good decibel level. I do miss the middle eastern flair though. It is what made the night life at Cafe Del Mar different...I also liked the food at Cafe Del Mar so I miss that.

“Great people watching”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

The patio seats are great for people watching. The food came very fast and the server wa pleasant. All this is good. The problem is that the food is just okay. I had the tuna steak which was cooked very inconsistent. I ordered it medium rare which it was on one part but it got progressively more done as you worked through it until it was well done on one end. The music was good, I just can't give this place more than an average rating though.

“Ok food, good atmosphere, they charge you for the musician!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Food is ok... But they charge you for miscellaneous, and then they tell you that you have to pay for the musician who played live music! I gave the musician tip and then they charged me $4.00 extra on my bill for the musician! Incredible! This is against the law!

“Wonderful Seafood”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had the calamari and shrimp with linguine, it was one of the best seafood dishes I have ever had - outside my husband's, that is. Great views of the beach, the restaurant is right on the strip across from the public beach. The burgers were tasty too. All around, nice place to eat.

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Less than average food quality. Forced gratuity means less than average service. Used to be a fantastic place. Now off the grid to the low side. Did I mention the food is less than average? A lot less.
