Since bar and food are two different entities, it was strange at the te of ordering. Service was a little bit slow and the food were average. It was a nice place with the pool and the lightning, though.

This place is hard to find, tucked in a neighborhood sort of above Tamboo.

Pool side restaurant. Bar and food bills are separate as they are separate businesses. Really fun people working there. Fresh and nicely presented sushi and a welcome change from all the Puerto Rican options we had been having for over a week. Kind of hard to find but worth it....

This is definitely not worth it. Everything was overpriced, and the food was not very good. My parents got one tuna thing that they liked, but everything else was below average. I guess it's a nice place to go if you use the pool, but if you're just looking for good food then then you should find somewhere else.
