Loved this place since I walked in. Such a nice place! Food was very good and desserts were great too. Perfect place for a romantic dinner. Kind of pricey but worth it. Must visit!

Food and wine still excellent. Service was so prompt and courteous. We are glad to visit here every year. Loved the watermelon and goat cheese appetizer. Terrific presentation on the mahi mahi and the grouper. Prices were reasonable and the view soothing. Would go again...More

Marandi is hard to find but do try! Dinner for 5 out on an open air (but covered) deck. We were there after sunset but I am sure the view is phenomenal. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient, without rushing us. We had 2...More
