When you go upstairs there is a huge cheese bar, an olive bar filled with any type of olives, and a meat bar.. You create a cheese platter with whatever else you want on it. Not too expensive but...

Brimming with yummy sandwiches and drinks and all kinds of lunch and snack options. You can just pop in and get a quick bite to eat, but there are usually lines to deal with.

Place was crowded, so we opted to order a cheese platter to take back to our timeshare. The selection of cheeses was very good. The staff recommended three types of cheeses for the platter. That being said,... More
