Staff is very friendly. Excellent Service! Loved the oyster and tuna. Fish of the day was also a good choice! The red wine from New Zealand is a great choice to complement the meal!

We had stayed here at the Sunset Resort previously and we hoped the restaurant meals would be as enjoyable as before. The meals were delicious and the staff attentive. We were very comfortable inside as the evening was wet and windy,
