Excited to try this oceanfront restaurant recommended to us, but it was a disappointment. Food was mediocre and quite pricey. Lobster ravioli was not tasty and presentation was not creative. I like spicy food, but the seafood pasta was so hot, I sent it back,...More

The view and location are great. The seafood steak we had was huge and excellent. The wait staff was very pleasant. Best restaurant on the beach.

The drinks and the food were good. You cannot beat the view/location for sure. The service was friendly and it was busy. I had the Ahi and it was good. I would go back again.

21 Oceanfront has a luxury limo to collect and return you to your accommodation, but the standard does not drop inside the restaurant itself. This is a high-end, top quality restaurant with old school service and great food. Put it on your sandbucket list!

Overall a disappointing dinner. We were hotel guests with a reservation and we got seated in the bar area, which totally killed the fine dining feel. Live music in the bar was very good and sports on the TV. But not what we were looking...More
