Loved the music, singer, and food served family style! My favorite was the cheese tray and the steak. Beautiful scenery just outside the door. Easy access via water taxi from our hotel. Romantic... can’t wait to go back next time at Universal.

There's nothing like a table-side opera serenade to make a family meal completed. While this place might be better for couples on a date than for families, our whole crew enjoyed it. Excellent pasta dishes and a decent wine list too. The service was slow...More
