This restaurant is gorgeous, you may eat inside or out.....as we are from the UK it was to warm for us to eat outside so we had a booth, loved it!
The menu is varied, the Lobster macaroni OMG!!!! The waiters are not only friendly but very knowledgable .....anything to help.
The Chef Neall is amazing and so nice, he spoke to us about his experiences and how much he loves cooking and you can tell.
great place to chill or a special occasion...

Went for dinner while at La plava hotel, this restaurant is pricey but worth it, had seafood platter with ceviche and fresh caught grouper blackened they were delicious, very good wine list, if you seat close to the beach at night it will be dark given they are protecting turtles so keep light to a minimun, service outstanding, for breakfast we had the buffet and it was pretty standard and filling.

The food is stellar and the view is pure Gulf turquoise--like a painting. Service terrific. Lovely restaurant like old time Florida located in the heart of a private beach club which has it's own restaurant a floor above with even better views!!!

What a great experience! We took our visiting guests to Baleen on a Saturday night. The bar/lobby area was a little noisy with kids running around everywhere, but we were seated outside just steps from the beach. It was a summer evening but the breeze made it pleasant and the view of the sunset was gorgeous. The menu is straightforward and leans towards fresh Florida seafood. The food is simply prepared and well executed. The wine list is extensive with a wide range of domestic and imported selections. The service was absolutely perfect and professional. We rarely dine out on Saturday evenings (we used to have a restaurant so we avoid dining out on the busiest night) but everything about our experience was well done. We can't wait to go back.

Food was very good, just a bit overpriced. The cocktails were really overpriced. Service was a bit slow.
