I decided to book ahead for the Sunday brunch while I was still in the states. I went there in 2006 and 2011. Both times I've had a great experience with the food and the service. This time around, the food wasn't as good as I remembered it. I gave it 3 stars only base on the service. The waiters... More

This is our third time dining at this restuarant. The ambiance is romanitc and tropical, the food outstanding, service over the top. But very pricey four people dinner was $375 that included appetizers and wine. Expensive but you only live once and vacation once a year so go for it. You'll love it.

WAY over priced. Food was Ok but not great. Was notgiven any instruction on item availability or location. High point was the waiters serving champaine and OJ. Should have gone to Burger King.

This was the most expensive brunch we've ever had. Food was good but not for the price. Service staff poured the never ending mimosa drinks and were very attentive. The food selections were good but not outstanding. The omelet station could have been good if they had more than one person making omelets and eggs Benedict to order. The line... More

This restaurant is in the Hyatt hotel and the hostess did not look happy that we were there before 6 pm. The server started as attentive however that ended after the restaurant got full at 6:45 PM. The Brie and the Caesar salad was good but my family was not impressed with our OVERPRICED meals of filet and scallops at... More

We LOVED the look of this place (in the Hyatt) when we walked up because of the rock exterior and the water next to it. Really beautiful place! However, the service was incredibly slow (to the point where our waiter dropped off a bottle of white wine and took so long to come back we poured it ourselves). I will... More
