“A great view”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

The food was good, not out of this world. But, the view is outstanding. We had a family group of 13. They were very accommodating. The waiter attended to all of our needs and was very patient with us.

“Gorgeous food, but you have to wait for it”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Loved the food, but the service was a little slow. Lovely restaurant (a little chilly with the aircon - would advise to eat outside). If you go outside you can see the sunset and watch the occasional dolphin jump out the Gulf. A bit pricey ($250 for a family of two adults, two children).

“Beautiful food, beautiful location”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We ate outside on the terrace watching the sunset over the ocean. The food was as good as our server Glenn described, and possibly the best meal I've eaten at a restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere and wonderful location.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

The food was awful! Both my husband and I are not picky when it comes to restaurants or food. The food here was horrible. The scenery was spectacular. You are better off, grabbing a drink from the bar, sitting on the beach with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

“Perfect in every way......”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We dined with friends on the terrace, overlooking the most beautiful beach. The perfect sunset, and exceptional service added to our enjoyment. Each dish was passionately described by our server, Glenn, and every meal was as good as he described. We all agreed it was one of the very best meals we had all had. Joe, the Dining Manager, added his unobtrusive management style to make us all feel special! Overall a truly perfect evening in a wonderful restaurant. We will return.....
