I made a reservation months ago and told restaurant we would be celebrating my wife’s birthday. When restaurant confirmed I reminded them it was my wife’s birthday. We were running 15 minutes late and my daughter called to tell them and they accommodated us and she reminded them it was my wife’s birthday.

Sat down and great table outside. Service was terrible and food was bad too. We had shrimp appetizer and my daughter had Paella and shrimp were mealy and mushy. My wife had the cauliflower steak and it was just a clump of cold cauliflower. My Branzjno was good but too many bones. After meal they didn’t even refill our water bottle at table and when time for desert not one thing was mentioned about my wife’s birthday. Very disappointing and we will never go here again!

Had the bacon wrapped dates for appetizer and branzino for dinner. I was lucky enough to have the lovely, friendly, and helpful server Elizabeth waiting on me for the second time this week. She is an amazing server who really helps guide selections and wine pairings. She graciously offered and filleted my branzino and just went “above and beyond” to make sure I had a lovely dining experience. Will definitely come back next time I’m on the island. The food and service are absolutely amazing! And you can’t beat the view at sunset!

The abalone was amazing as was the clams, shrimp and wild boar sausage appetizer. And my husband absolutely loved the pork Milanese!

Had the Ahi as appetizer and scallops for dinner. Both were terrific - very tasty and nicely presented! Best part of the evening was my server Elizabeth - so friendly and helpful in guiding my selections and wine pairings. I will be back!

Beautiful atmosphere, amazing food and preparation, delightful servers and staff. My only complaint is that servers kept coming by to clear the table and dishes before I was finished. It got a bit annoying and I felt rushed. I had to tell them 3x that I’m still eating. They need to take a hint from the Europeans and let patrons enjoy their meals. Regardless, I strongly recommend the place for a lovely family dinner or special occasion,

The waitress was extremely inattentive and literally threw down the utensils and food plates. Don’t know if she was overworked. Kitchen was slow and the dishes were edible but nothing to write home about. The combination of bad waitress, slow food and ordinary tasting food made this experience forgettable. It is unfortunate Westin has this kind of restaurant in their facility.

We paid $385 for dinner and ended up sick all night. We were staying in a condo and fighting over the restroom all night. The service was slow and not very friendly. The only good thing I can say about this place is the view was amazing. Other then that, bleh. The taste of the food was just ok .

This was my second time at this restaurant. Very nice ocean view. Waited over an hour and 15 mins for dinners to arrived. Our waiter Dough had to apologized twice for the delay. I ordered Ahi Tuna which I sent back due to inappropriate temperature, unappealing steam vegetable and some kind of rice. Very unacceptable plate presentation. Less than a minute later, Dough brought another plate which he said it was someone else’s plate and this was verified by the manager when she came by to the table.

The views were amazing. However both meals were luke warm and dry. We had a flatbread and the short ribs.
The server came to take our order and then dessert and brought the bill.
No checking and asking about the food or checking for more drinks.

Took forever to get salad. Diner plates arrived in waves. First plate cam 10 minutes before last plate. Very expensive for a overwhelmingly mediocre experience. Go somewhere else

Lousy service! Waiter basically ignored us. Gave us bread without plates. We both had Shish kebab. Meat and fish was fine but sauce with it led to me having an upset stomach all night. Flatbread was dry and had hardly had any cheese or tomatoes on it. Place was overpriced.

Just don’t go. The Mediterranean cuisine is bland and under seasoned. If you have been anywhere like Italy, Spain or Greece you will find this an utter disappointment. The only saving grace are the servers- who will make those of us from the mainland of Caucasian descent think about perpetuating culinary colonialism in the 21st century

Our dinner was great! The server (John Aaron) was busy but attentive and thoughtful. The food was delicious and even though I was disappointed they were out of the Wild Boar Ragu, the scallops did not disappoint. The kei kei menu was good as well. We were exhausted from traveling but dinner was a great ending to our day.

Steak had too much gristle. There was something hard like a small rock or sand in my Brussels sprouts. Flavor of shrimp appetizer was not spectacular. Fish of the day was good
