Some of the best sushi I've had. Staff are quite friendly and the restaurant sits on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Would definitely go back.

Zen restaurant is a beautiful relaxing place to dine. We have eaten there twice in one week. Delicious food. Lovely staff. Prices fairly reasonable. We ate Thai but you have the choice of Japanese or Thai. If at the Crane not to be missed.

There comes a time when you need a change from the fried seafood and other accouterments of beach dining, and the Zen pops up as a great alternative. Solid asian options from Japanese to Thai get the palate tingling with rolls, thai curries, fried rices...More
