Had a lovely dinner at Pelicans tonight. Our waiter Antonio provided fabulous service! We are not new visitors to The Royal and have visited many times. We have also had fabulous service from Antonio previously at Asiana and Spice!

Our servers Roberto (who should be promoted!), Demetrio, Gerardo, Daniel and Alfonso made sure we were catered to fully. We are vegetarian and they made sure we got lots of choices. Hostess... More

Pelicanos is located near the beach and is a great lunch spot. The menu has a wide variety of options and the view is incredible.
