This restuarant is probably within five minutes walking distance of the Tamarind Hotel and is perfect, with little to fault. The view of the beach and ocean beyond is stunning and must be one of the 'got to go to' restaurants on the West coast.

We had the hen egg appetizer and it was like eggs benedict but with potatoes. The merlot was good and the lobster was delish. It's pricey for two people and is not kids friendly in my opinion.

This restaurant does not make the most of its beautiful location overlooking the sea. I am afraid the food was only average and it turned out very expensive - a bad combination. The staff and the service was good but we expected a lot better. Décor is also good as it has recently been refurbished.

What a stunning restaurant, the whole experience was amazing from start to finish. We arrived early and had drinks in the bar area, served by chatty and engaging staff. The cocktails were all delicious and some quite different. The dining area is beautiful, we were shown to our table by a really nice waiter who made us feel very welcome,... More

Impeccable service from the minute you arrive, to the bar and then the restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent, with a great menu. Looks much better for the refurb too.

Started off well as a truly stunning setting. Took almost an hour to get here too. The bread and oils were amazing, I had the foie gras starter which was very average and then the catch of the day - Mahi mahi - was a massive chunk of fish that was a bit slimy and not at all enjoyable. I... More

We were told we might not get the ocean view but were stunned to be seated next to a huge tree which blocked any view at all from one side of the table. Furthermore the table was in the corner against a wall leaving just two sides available for seating and serving. The serving staff kept having to lean over... More

Lovely ambience, friendly staff, stylish deco, food a bit overpriced, but other attributes more than compensated.
