An impressive kitchen within this male wonderland. Everything is good, the staff remember your name and the service is great.

I have eaten at Island House at many different times of the day, but since I always stay just a few blocks away, up Flemming St, it is an excellent option for dinner when coming in late. I have always had excellent meals there!

Our first night at the Island House we ordered salads - they were huge and delicious! (One Cobb, One Greek!) We also enjoyed two mornings of their fabulous breakfast - fantastic eggs!

My partner and I actually have to force ourselves NOT to eat every meal at the Island House Cafe - breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all really good - a great variety of food, very well prepared, and served in a beautiful setting.

Staying elsewhere, we went mainly for the gay sauna, which was disappointing and too small & practically empty, other than that, it was just relaxing around the pool area and/or drinking/eating. Most people seemed to be there in groups. This wasn't the typically gay sauna we were expecting so after trying a few different times, that was it as far... More

Great food and service but be prepared for the views of clothing optional folks around the pool. That can be fun too, but mostly not.

Very good food poolside makes it so you don't have to go anywhere. Yes you can eat naked if you must. Most wear their speedos or fully dressed when first arriving. Fun.
