                                        Very nice setting right next to the ocean. The fish was too salty but the waitress replaced it with scallops which were amazing.

                                        We enjoyed our meal even though it was pricey. It was very cold due to a poor design of the building, probably because it is on the water and it was windy when we were there. They provided blankets! so it must be a common issue. The staff were very nice.

                                        Lorenzo and Kim were friendly, kind and provided excellent service. It made my birthday lunch with our young toddler an enjoyable experience. The waterfront table was unforgettable. The mahi mahi tacos were delicious, the tortillas were freshly made. Street parking was easy to find and the restaurant is on the bottom floor of the hotel.

                                        I was greeted and seated by a polite waitress but it’s a shame I don’t remember her name. I had a beautiful ocean view with my date and we enjoyed our meal. It was clean and very classy inside and I appreciate the waiters and waitresses wearing mask. 10/10 will be back

                                        Loved this spot for an opportunity to meet my girls for a birthday luncheon. I guess I should’ve paid more attention to the brunch menu because it wasn’t a normal brunch menu. I was concern that there wasn’t a beef option for my friends and they would be disappointed in the food selections; however one of my friends and I had the French toast and a side of bacon and the other one had the tacos and was all very pleased with our food; prepared very uniquely and tasty. I also had the crispy Brussels sprouts and the parm fries while I waited for them to arrive. Nonetheless the big star of the afternoon was the Guavarita; it was simply amazing and divine! Our view was breathtaking and it was a great dining experience overall and last but not least our waiter was great and very attentive to us!

                                        Courses served out of order. Entrees delivered an hour after first 2 courses. Streak was over cooked and potatoes not cooked. Fish was somewhat over cooked or sat under warming light too long Management tried to make up for deficiencies but too little too late for a great dining experience. We had great expectations but were greatly disappointed. We have taken Splashes off our list of go to restaurants.

                                        Everything was great with the exception of the parking. If you have a low car - chances are you will scrape your fender as you go up and down the steep ramp. SMH - i now have to spend a couple thousand to fix my bumper.

                                        We loved almost everything. We waited a long time for even a greeting from our waiter (20 minutes). The waiter was never there....ever.

                                        The food, ambiance, location and service was exceptional. We started off with the octopus and oysters. I don’t typically eat octopus but it’s often times over cooked and chewy but this was cooked to perfect, tender and very tasty. My husband ordered the short rib, I ordered the branzino with risotto, everything tasted amazing. The service was the cherry on top, from the hostess to our sever, everyone was friendly and pleasant.

                                        Amazing seaside service with warm employees who made a great night better. The food was amazing and worth the value. Amazing flavors throughout the menu, and a great complimentary desert for our anniversary. Definitely recommend setting a reservation, we’d love to come back for brunch instead of dinner to get the rest of the experience.

                                        I love the service and also the ambience that the restaurant had. I also loved having the beach in front of us to enjoy the food and it was a vibe
