Very attentive staff serving very well prepared foods. Hidden gem in Paradise Beach Resort across from La Cabana. Nice full service high end bar, interesting selection deliciously prepared. Quiet setting.

I wish there was a 0 star option. That's all I have to say. The service was horrible, the food was even worse. That is all.

We ate there once on our last visit, last summer, and did not enjoy it at all. The service was excruciatingly slow, the food mediocre, and there were too many tables and chairs crowded together to make it nigh impossible to get up and move between them. An overall awful dining experience. It is no wonder that they're closed.

We were starving and didn't want to travel to far from our resort. This enjoyable restaurant is right next to La Cabana Beach Resort. At first glance we didn't see anyone sitting at the tables outside. So we weren't sure if this was a good thing. We walked inside and saw a few families enjoying their meals. We were greeted...

I usually don't review restaurants but this one is worth the mention. My boyfriend and I ate here sort of on a whim. We were staying next door at the la cabana resort and wanted to try something close and different from the restaurants given where we were staying. We had not had the best meals at either restaurant at... More

We almost left the restaurant since we were the only customers. We decided to stay and we were definitely impressed by the favors of our dishes. There were fresh seafood in large amounts on our plates. The red snapper was cooked perfectly. It was moist and tender. The seafood Alfredo was surprisingly delicious with pasta al dente and savory sauce.... More
