The open air patio facing the beach set a wonderful mood for dinner. We ordered the Caesar salad, seafood linguine and chicken Marsala. The meal came with wonderful warm bread drenched in oil and balsamic vinegar. Overall our meal was tasty and satisfying.

Not sure we didn't try it but I would think so because the restaurant is part of a hotel

If you are carrying your beach gear then we suggest taking a very short taxi ride. A few minutes in the van and $6 later and your at the beach!
