Beautiful view of the pool and the ocean, inside and outside seating. Although not the most expensive restaurant, it is up there but with the quality of food to go with the price tag.

We dined here during our stay at tranquility bay and were very pleased with the outdoor seating. Our server (who I cannot remember her name, says she lives right across the street) was superb. It was excellent fine dining right within the resort.

Wait staff was so very friendly and courteous, food was delicious and the dessert was even better. Menu prices are a touch high, but the resort is so nice it's worth it.

It's a nice restaurant but a bit weird. The food is very good but would be better if simply cooked with less sauce/recipe complications. Good quality ingredients don't need batter or dressing up, in my opinion. The staff are a bit over the top and...More
