Amazing views! Amazing food! We were a little late to our reservation (15 minutes) but they seated us right away and took no time getting our food and drinks prepared. The only con: the kitchen closes promptly, and if you plan on eating on a night that isn't too busy (like us), you might encounter issues trying to get your entire order in. Other than that, an amazing dining experience.

Came on a Saturday night for a Birthday and the restaurant wasn’t too busy at all, it was nice and quaint and the service was amazing they even remembered the Birthday and brought a cake out. The only suggestion I would have however is for a menu expansion/upgrade .... there were no vegetarian or chicken options for appetizers and no vegetarian option for dinner either, however the chickens as amazing.

This place is the total experience. Everything was just perfect (from the service to the ambience)

You can see the occasional dolphin or two swimming around if you’re lucky!
