Food was good. Waitstaff someone inattentive. Atmosphere amazing. Lots of sea lions swimming around. Great View of the water. Marine iguanas wandering the deck right next to you. Nice ice cold beer. But don't miss the moro smoothies. They are made from a feral raspberry. And they are absolutely amazing.

We stayed in this hotel and had a meal package. I echo many of the other recent reviews of this restaurant. Lunches were average (although many items on the menu were not available) and breakfast was poor, with many of the platters and hot trays nearly empty. On our last day there it appeared that fresh cooked eggs were an... More

The sign at the entrance says "Restaurant and Sushi Bar," and since we were craving sushi, we decided to go there for dinner. The setting is quite nice, right on the water. That's where the positives end. The first hint of trouble was the menu - food and wine prices were outrageously high, as other reviewers have already mentioned. The... More

It didn't have most of what they show in their menu. Food overpriced for its quality. They charge taxes but don't give out invoices. They say they'll send by email and doesn't happen. They told me they changed management a few years ago. That must be why they are not what they used to be. I visited this place back... More

This restaurant specializes in Japanese cuisine, but it’s a far cry from what Japanese cuisine really is. The prices are nearly double that of restaurants outside the hotel and the food quality is low. One night I felt lazy, after a long day out exploring, so I decided to give dinner a try here. I ordered coconut crusted shrimp as... More

Like most of the other posts The location was awesome, but the service was not the best. The food was average. Make sure to bring bug spray when going to eat, or drink, there.

We stopped in here for a drink about dusk. The atmosphere is wonderful, and the view is great. It took forever to get waited on, then a long time to get our drinks, and the server was clueless. We also had to go find her to pay. We observed another party leave because of no service.

The ambience and location of the place is amazing, but the service is awful, the waitress are not trained and do not even know the menu. Every question you make they have to go and and ask for details. It took a very long time to get the food and even the drinks. If you want yo see the Sea... More

This restaurant has a lovely ambiance and outdoor patio setting but food quality and service desperately needs attention ! We recently stayed in their hotel for a week and found that the bulk of the business the restaurant receives is for the " breakfast buffet " which was included with our accommodation. The breakfast buffet was basic, and fundamentally the... More
