We had a server named Michael S. He really made our night great. He was exceptionally personable, gave great suggestions and seemed to have perfect timing if and when we had a need.
I sure hope he’s there the next time we go!

Our dinner last night was a huge disappointment. Our server was not knowledgeable about the menu and did not honor our “no cilantro” request. One tagine and several sides arrived ice cold as if they were served directly from the refrigerator; the waiter replaced them but one diner had a very long wait while his tagine was cooked. The restaurant is still beautiful but otherwise was a huge and very expensive letdown.

Our server (I think his name was Michael) was terribly unfriendly and inattentive. After ordering cocktails, we tried to order an appetizer and were told that we needed to order all food at once which we then did. Our cocktails did not arrive until after we were finished with dinner. Our server did not check on us once between taking our order and delivering our check. While the food was good and the restaurant beautiful. The service we received was truly abysmal.

This is an instagrammable location that definitely has a younger client base for the region. The service quality does not match the level of the food and decor--but that is a typical issue in the region that other restaurants have to contend with as well.

We arrived and our waiter came by took our order for drinks…the drinks arrived and we did not see our waiter again. I found the manager and she took our dinner order and comped us for some appetizers. At $40-$50 per entree I would expect better service. Great atmosphere and will return again and hope we have a better experience.

I will return but our meal was cold when served. I expected it to be so given the time lag from our appetizer. Our waiter asked how things were every few minutes we were there the first half hour (which is annoying ) but didn’t ask again for forty minutes until he served our entrees. The chef is a genius and the ambiance is wonderful but based on two dinners in the last three weeks the waitstaff is untrained and at sea. I may need to wait on myself in the future to enjoy the food and ambiance

It’s a little hidden gem. It’s your typical Instagrammable brunch spot. Ambience and style is nice. Waiters were quick and courteous. It’s smaller than I expected. We ordered a variety of different foods. The calamari looked yummy however the batter and calamari itself was quite bland which was a disappointment, even with the sauces provided. The French toast was good, the bread itself had a great flavor and we liked the combination of the cream and the fruits. The burger was okay, it had a nice presentation however it was quite basic but the fries were good! The quiche was creamy and perfectly balanced. They did serve it with greens on the side which worked as a balance for the creaminess. But this was just a portion of menu.

A great experience. Cool small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking pool area of also cool Sands Hotel. A definite go to place for a date or a group of friends getting together for a good time. And Request Michael to be your waiter. He will not be disappointed.
