Highly recommend when you want to spoil yourself a bit and enjoy being out in a safe manner while we still are under COVID restrictions.

The view was spectacular and the ambiance very romantic for the occasion. The level of customer service provided by all the staff was top notch from the second we walk in the door. The food was amazing, the dish prepared by Chef Zack was one of the best dishes I've had in a long time. I absolutely recommend this place. The view of the Sunset and the round pool complemented each other very well. Perfect place for date night or better yet stay at the amazing resort.

The hostess sat us at a wonderful full view table which was so nice of her. My guest was visiting from out of town and was amazed at the sunset view from the restaurant! The food was delicious. Love the tortilla soup with a wedge of lime! Yummy Virgin Margherita and they gave me s a generous steak even though we split the dinner. The brioche were soft and good and with the heat lamp, we enjoyed ourselves with exceptional service. We had the server, manager, food runner and bus boy ask if we were okay. Everyone went out of their way to ensure we had all we needed and we really appreciated it. Thank you! 😄
