Had a lovely table for my daughters birthday. Grateful for that. The service was excellent!
However I hope this doesn’t come across rude but was disappointed when they sat a couple with a loud crying baby next to us. Maybe they could have possibly sat them in another area not close to others.

Outstanding view and ambiance. Service was outstanding with friendly service with both the waitress and the food delivery/bus boy. Food choices were minimal but what we ordered was delicious with many layers of taste. We were there for lunch and prices were high.

We waited almost an hour to get out food. Other tables who were seated after us were eating. There were no apologies from wait staff. Our food should have been free and the Caesar salad was terrible. Disappointed

Came here to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday. Mainly for the fantastic ocean view. It’s just impeccable to sit next to the beach and listen to the waves while enjoying good food. There is not that many vegan options which is why I took one star off. The vegan veggie sandwich was rather plain. If they could spend more time investing more vegan or other diet friendly menu that’d be perfect!

Served me a very dry well-done meat in the burger instead of medium well and insisted it’s ok.

Not everyone may think of Splashes as a great spot for breakfast but they have a great menu for breakfast and morning cocktails. Great spot for a Saturday mornings.

The day was perfect as the waves gently hit the sand my friend and I enjoyed the tableside lobster bisque, crisp brussel sprouts and gnocci with a glass of red wine.
The baked Alaska for dessert was amazing and our server Fernando and his team provided fantastic service.
