We've eaten the dinner and breakfast buffets as well ordered off of the menu. The food has been excellent with many choices of fresh, properly prepared food.

we ate dinner here after returning from trip to Galapagos. We are staying in the Hilton and was convenient. It was a mistake. Semi-warm bottles of beer set the tone. The piece de resistance was a grilled chicken dish, the leg of which was still bloody. We drew the attention of the waiter. He took the offending piece of chicken away. No apology, no recognition anything was amiss. Give this place a wide berth for your health's sake.

We ate here for breakfast and found the selection of food was plentiful, everything from fresh made to order eggs, selection of meats, local dishes and variety of fruit. The staff were very attentive and were so welcoming.

Nice variety of appetizers and entrees...and nicely presented. Service was prompt and pleasant. Was the meal memorable? Not especially --- but very good nonetheless.
