The Forbes Plaque on the wall is helpful in forming an opinion. We were confused about the restaurant name. Is it Marinus or Lucia or Bernadus? We visited twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times the service was leisurely. It was good...More

The restaurant itself was nothing great. Just like the rest of the property it was run down. But the food was flawless.
