    Overall we did not have a great experience. It was our first time here. We had a reservation but They seated us in the bar area. It was NOT crowded. The dining room would have been so much nicer. We waited 17 minutes for a server. Being that this is a Ritz Carlton we expected so much more. Felt like 2nd class citizens. Disappointed.

    The food is overpriced for the quality. My wife ordered the fish curry with muscles and lobster. They served it with shells and skins despite being all immersed in the coconut red curry. It required to take out the lobster and remove the skin, before eating. It was overcooked and not enjoyable anyways. The appetizers were ok, but nothing really special. Compared to Merriman’s it’s at least 3 levels below.

    We had a fabulous meal last night at Banyan Tree. The food was delicious, service was perfect and the ambience was great. Dined with our 3 children and they enjoyed their meals and then ran around in the grass next to the restaurant without distracting any of the other diners. I would highly recommend this restaurant with or without children.

    The worst Thanksgiving i have ever experienced. Wait staff was OK, but food service was horrible. After 2 hrs of being at the restaurant our main course hadn’t been served. We paid our bar tab, but not for this horrible meal. I’m surprised the Ritz-Carlton would ever make such a mess out of a major holiday dinner. I have eaten at the Banyan Tree in Maui and is was fantastic. I would go again but NEVER again for a fixed menu or major holiday. Made our holiday very stressed and disappointed end of the day.

    Beautiful restaurants! plants everywhere (the hostess told me it takes 10 hours per week to water the plants!) Food was amazing, Charles was a very attentive and friendly waiter. Michelle, the manager was also very attentive. Highly recommended! (It is a bit of a walk from the Ritz Carlton, though, so expect to walk outside. So, bring a raincoat if it's raining.)

    The food was absolutely outstanding. Drinks were quite strong which many will love but I would have preferred a little less - but cannot complain that there wasn’t enough booze. My husband had the short ribs and the meat was melt in your mouth good. I had the seafood red curry and honestly if I were to have to pick a last meal - this would be it. The broth was outstanding, just the right amount of spice and the seafood was cooked to perfection. The portions were generous. All in all a wonderful meal. Quite expensive though so make sure you check menu prices first.

    Everything you expect from a first class restaurant in first class resort. Careful, knowledgeable, attentive service (put not swarming). We shared the coconut shrimp ceviche and the seafood paella, which was easily big enough for 2. Each morsel of paella-mussel, scallop, lobster tail, asparagus, chorizo-was perfectly cooked. Speciality cocktails and wines by the glass also excellent.

    We had a lovely time celebrating a birthday at the Banyan Tree. The food, drinks and service were superb.. The only letdown was our main course arrived at the table barely lukewarm. They need to find a way to get the freshly cooked food brought to the table in a more timely fashion. The dinner plates were not heated prior to plating and didn’t appear to be the type to retain heat either. I hope they can remedy this before our next visit.

    Smaller menu than we would have liked, should have pasta or chicken. Good appetizers, we were seated in the back which was disappointing and part of our group was upset (even after we asked to be moved) and the restaurant was not full

    It was a little treacherous getting there on very poorly lit pathways as it is located at the beach front and not in the main building. It was lovely and a great meal but the prices were a little difficult to swallow. Our waitress was lovely and attentive. Flavors were amazing as every dish had a variety of tastes combined. A treat for the senses visually too.
