We called on Sunday to make a reservation. The girl who answered took my number and said someone would return my call. That never happened so we called again on Tuesday and made reservations for Wednesday. We sat down and two of us ordered Mojitos....More

We have eaten here the past couple of years with our family. Great with large dailies or small groups as well! Excellent wine list. I had seafood enchiladas and they were top notch!

Nice spot in Cinnamon Shore resort. We had reservations and were seated inside in a nice corner table. Food was good. Not a great kids menu. Bathrooms outside - no big deal - not room for them in the overall, small restaurant. If you travel...More

All excellent except for one thing. We ate at a table outside, which was fine except that we were placed on the path to the restrooms. Annoying to have to be distracted by foot traffic. Otherwise food is excellent, service is great, only recommend staying...More
