Friendly and attentive staff. Nice wine selection. Filets and rack of lamb were very good. Way above average restaurant for a mediocre hotel.

The Brunch at Lido Beach Resort is great! There is a wide selection of breakfast items as well as lunch items. I tried a majority of the items, but the tastiest was the Cuban shredded meat, the pork belly, and the fresh made waffles with berries, chocolate shavings, whipped cream, and maple syrup. They have eggs Benedict, a carving station,... More

This was a great evening. Our waiter was terrific. He took me to a private little area to watch the sunset and stayed with me. We chatted and had fun. The food was tasty and the atmosphere was nice. Our teenage son joined us half-way through the meal and they were very accommodating. I would recommend this to anyone, family... More

Perfect spot for happy hour or late night snacks/cocktails. Very crowded during happy hour with a lot of older clients who have discovered early bird dining and drinks. We went later and it was nice with a piano bar, and nice evening cocktails overlooking the area.

We are staying across the street from the Lido Beach Resort and thought we would try the Tiki bar for an afternoon cocktail. The bar is easily accessible through the hotel and is adjacent to the hotel pools. We had no trouble finding a table at 5:30 on a Saturday. As appetizers were ½ price we decided we might as... More
