The coconut cake here is to die for. It is 12 layers of coconut goodness and the outside has the most perfect toasted coconut. YUM! It is a must try.

We ate outside. Beautiful garden atmosphere. Excellent service. Fish was wonderfully prepared. My daughter had scallops and loved them. The coconut cake was wonderful. It was a large serving. We split it 3ways. Would definitely go again. Expensive but worth it.More

We look forward to your visit. We request business casual attire when dining at Peninsula Grill. Dining at the bar is more relaxed as is the courtyard. Cheers, Ryan

I didn't see any when we were there in November but it was also nearly 80 degrees during the day then. I would expect they either do have heaters or they don't open the patio if its too chilly.
