My Wife and I recently went to the Coral Reef for lunch. We both had the Salmon BLT, which was very good. Salmon, bacon, lettuce and tomato on chiabatta bread…very good…perhaps needs a little sauce…I added tartar sauce. For a small charge, you can add sweet potato fries, which were delicious. The café is a little noisy, since it has the bar in the restaurant and the indoor pool is nearby. The server was very friendly and efficient. We have eaten here before while in OC, and the food has always been very good!!!

We tried the hotel's restaurant for breakfast and were surprised at how good it was. Interesting options for grown ups, a limited kid's menu. Reasonably priced and tasty. Our waiter seemed a bit overwhelmed by having three tables at the same time.

We got a bad first impression of the restaurant, we stopped in our first day in town before hitting the beach and ordered lunch. A burger, a BLT, and two kids mac and cheese. It took almost an hour before we got our food! And there were only 2 other tables in the entire restaurant. It was ridiculously slow. Once the food arrived, it was excellent. Bacon seemed fresh, burger was perfectly cooked, kids enjoyed the macaroni. The next morning we decided to order room service breakfast. The food arrived so much faster, it was at our door within 20 minutes of placing the order. However, the food was not nearly as tasty as the lunch from the day before. Eggs were cooked very hard, pancakes were bland, the cinnamon French toast was just awful, and tasted as if it had been frozen and thawed. The orange juice seemed watered down. Nothing at breakfast was good.

We decided to try room service for dinner one night, and again, the food arrived promptly, within 20 minutes. The crab cake was excellent, full of meat and not much filler. Coconut shrimp were very tasty, as were the wings and burgers.

Stopped by this morning & sat at the bar. Waited 20 minutes with no service. Would like to rate this restaurant better, but we left due to lack of service...

We stay at this hotel many times a year and generally eat at the restaurant because either we don't want to go out or we grab lunch. I forget how long the hotel has been open but we have been going that long. So we have seen cooks come and go. I have to say, last nights dinner was the best I have ever had there. The cooks have changed around and they have been making the dishes better we were told. The Rasta Pasta was fantastic. I had it before and it was good but last night, awesome.
