The restaurant at Taboo Resort, formerly Muskoka Sands Inn, is in a great location but the food isn't great, the service tends to be snobby, and the prices are way too high. What are you paying for: the view?

We have had several meals at the Taboo resort restaurant. They are kind of hit or miss. The meals can be tasty, the atmosphere can be nice (on a quiet day) but often times it feels understaffed. The service is just meh.

Boated over and tied up at the dock out front. Went upstairs and sat in the outdoor patio. Ordered drinks and the Mediterranean Plate for an appetizer. Was absolutely delicious. Nice afternoon experience.

We were looking for a nice place to enjoy a cocktail and the sunset. We had heard countless ads on the radio about Taboo but did not remember that there was a fire in 2014 that took out the restaurant. That would explain the less...More

This restaurant is like a roadhouse with a beautiful view. It is strictly run by teenagers and in the three days we stayed at the resort, where it is located, we never saw anyone over early 20's. The food is mediocre at best. The first...More
