So, we stayed at Taboo for 2 nights for our anniversary. The food at the restaurant was delicious. The service was not so good. I'm not generally a complainer, I'm the person who tips regardless of service just because I feel obligated to do so....More

The restaurant at Taboo Resort, formerly Muskoka Sands Inn, is in a great location but the food isn't great, the service tends to be snobby, and the prices are way too high. What are you paying for: the view?
