Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of options. We had two evening meals both offered different options essential for a buffet. Quality of food was very good.

We did enjoy this restaurant - no questions. There are many items to choose from and everything that we had, we enjoyed. Everything here is pricey. Because the resort is in the middle of nowhere, you don't really have a choice when dining.
