The steak I had was delicious and the giant pina coladas were outstanding! Service was excellent and the location made it very easy to find.

The sashimi dishes were absolutely brilliant, the tuna main had a great crispy sear on the outside and a nice raw tastes on the inside, the salmon was very fresh coming from New... More

We had a voucher that was prepaid as part of our trip so upon presenting this we found out that our meal was fixed, with no choices. However, my wife doesn't eat Tuna and this was half of the meal, so they were very accommodating and switched out the dishes for salmon and a shrimp curry. The food was excellent.... More

The food was ok, nothing unique or different. Very basic fare, fish, rice, etc. hard to get additional drinks, server was not attentive. Had to walk away from our table four times to ask for a check. we had to get a water taxi back to our hotel

This meal was an addition to the package we put together. Prepaid 3-course meal with wine pairing. The restaurant picks you up and drops you from your resort. Quite convenient and generally what all the restaurants do. We arrived and almost ordered drinks until the server explained that each course would come with a pour. I declined the additional drink...

Another culinary highlight! Delicious, fresh and purely locally sourced seafood. Amazingly cooked - can definitely recommend the Poisson Cru and the shrimp curry - both outstanding! Also an incredibly beautiful setting on the water, with great live music. Loved it!

The only issue is they wouldn't provide the short shuttle back, but one of their customers offered to drive us, so it worked out ok in the... More
