My husband and I reserved a table but when we arrived, our booking had not been written in the diary. Not a great start, but luckily there were tables available. We were seated outside with a view over the water. Candles, along with the sounds of the sea, created a lovely romantic atmosphere. All the waiters were very pleasant and... More

Great location out on a peninsula which you reach via a golf cart, good service and nice remote setting by the sea and sound of waves. Food no better than we already had in local restaurants but prices super high, so basically you are paying for the location and being within a large hotel chain, so depends what's most important...

A meal of the fresh catch of red snapper and reef cod was excellent with Sula white wine and Kingfisher beer served in frozen glasses. The meal with 4 starters was sufficient for the 4 adults. The desserts were excellent. The children had pizzas that were pre-ordered as these are normally lunch items. The pizzas were excellent also. The location... More

Disappointing restaurant. The location is beautiful but quite honestly I've had better food on the flight over. Completely unimaginative. Friendly staff but we were given sparkling water when we didn't ask for it. Led to believe more alcoholic drinks were included in price when they weren't.

We loved our meals at Bait. The service and ambience are exemplary. The location of the restaurant with a lagoon on one side and the seaside on the other is simply spectacular. The food itself was good although I believe the seafood itself could have been better. Although its very good value, I would avoid having the buffet here and... More
