Aside from the view, the deck didn’t live up to much. The food was ok, but wouldn’t recommend it over any other spot in the area. The sangria was suggested but wasn’t anything special, especially for it to be recommended by the bartender. Way too expensive for the value, and very limited menu. Amazing location it’s a shame they can’t make something better of it

Ordered the langostines over pasta. The langostines came out way overcooked and the pasta was too salty. To the restaurants credit, they did send out another serving of the langostines, which were cooked adequately.

The food quality were not as good as we hopped and not as good as supposed to be for this price. Steak was from the cheap beef meat and under cooked, even though we ordered medium.
Burgers were good.
Do not order Gyn and Tonic, unless you want to be disappointed.
Overall, this was our second visit and the last one.

They treated my daughter like a literal Queen! The Chef, Andy came out and personally said Happy Birthday to my daughter and surprised her even more!!!
I did bring my own cupcakes and they all sung to her and the decor was Gorgeous.
