We enjoy sitting by the ocean and the food and service are very good. We have had wonderful dinners here with friends.

Unaccommodating to handicap, would not allow service dog even though there were no customers. I would not recommend this place solely on that premise. What a shame nice location. We ended up at Toscanos which was wonderful and treated us with respect.

This restaurant is just a more upscale version of the hotel's regular restaurant. The menu is similar. The food was good, but not worth the price they charge. Plus, they close the kitchen at 10:30 pm. Similar or better food could have been found outside...More

Very expensive by Mexican standards. Food not that great, although a change from standard fare. Service was poor. Kids were running around and squealing. View okay, but there are many places with the same, or better views and ambiance. Never again.
