First time at this restaurant. The atmosphere is average, there is not much wind circulation in tge area. Been here for company Christmas dinner and the food wasn't bad like most of the reviews (maybe the company got another menu choice). Tge dessert was delicious, very good. Was a small dessert but was good.

Except for the Tuesday night Beach Barbeque. There were a number of "locals" there in addition to resort guests.

The service was poor as this restaurant clearly pushes the buffet. For an island where fresh fish is caught daily, the menu choices were very limited and the pizza left a lot to be desired. This is not a place I would recommend.

We stayed at the Plaza Resort all inclusive and took all our meals here. The food was excellent (my weight gain proved that). Great menue and well prepared foods.

Lunch is terrible, overpriced and no quality. Compared to other pizza, it's overpriced and not very appealing. Beach BBQ food was just fair and overcooked.

Management trying to cut costs...and it shows! On two different occasions I ordered steak (one on Steak Night) and neither were edible...so tough you could not chew them! Menu selections have ZERO flavor...

Food was quite good; staffing definitely split: some terrific, a few really shouldn't be in the service business at all. Overall service tended to be slow--and drinks really frustratingly so.

Entrance to restaurant is not inviting and having lunch/dinner is even worse. Waitress was friendly but had not clue what her job was all about. Service and hospitality can not be found here. Food was less than average. Please fire the chef and hire someone who's willing to learn how to prepare food. what a waste of time and money.... More

The food was surprisingly tasteless and served with no enthusiasm. The menu mostly consisted in unsurprising "international offerings" you can get anywhere. We were disappointed. The best thing in this restaurant was the stray cat who got its share of our tuna :)
