Reception was good. It took long time to serve wine. Thet too after reminding the bar guy. They try to make up after the initial lack of service. The food was not bad and was served in time. And the food service was good.

Nice restaurant with water view. Good snapper excellent squash and ginger soup, A long walk if you’re staying at the far end of resort but worth it. Excellent service from beverage staff and especially Ishia the waitress. Loved it!

Lovelly lobster worth the extra cost of $25. Staff ready and willing to fill your glasses with water or your tipple of choice. Be prepared to walk over some sand to get there so if you are female chose shoes/sandals/heels appropriately!!

Hi. I think it is best you ask the restaurant direct although I would assume they are open as it is the beginning of their main season (Hurricane season finished). Wonderful food with tables on the beach candlelit and food... More
