A lovely restaurant at Vivanta. You have to book in advance. The food is excellent, so too the service. The restaurant overlooks the lagoon and the pool. Fish dishes were wonderful.

Though we were quite happy with the other restaurant on the island, the staff ensured us we should have at least one meal at this restaurant and we were not disappointed. It was a candlelight dinner with the fresh seafood. Absolutely delicious and very romantic.

Yummy food and excellent staff. Only thing is that they need to change the menu each day to give more variety to guests.

For those special occasions eating in the Open Grill looking over the Lagoon where they do fabulous steaks served by Tariq and Hussain is worth a visit during your stay

Hi we ate at the grill 4 times during our stay. Overall food and service was very good and some dishes excellent. In particular we liked the grilled jumbo prawns. The restaurant has a fantastic location. Only negative is that everything is expensive i.e. 50-90...More
