We stumbled upon this restaurant and decided to dine here. We were not disappointed! Expensive menu but totally worth it. Fresh seafood and impeccable service. Very romantic and beachfront. The property was gorgeous. Private and secluded

Be prepared to be treated like a second-class citizen if you're just visiting, not a guest at the hotel. (The place is small and family run, so they'll know whether you are or not.) We had heard about the "amazing infinity pool" and bar, but...More
