Both food and staff service was excellent. Piano entertainment during dinner was very nice. Interior design gave a premium feel and perfect ambiance for our family dinner. Highly recommend taking a carriage ride both to and from restaurant.

A perfect venue for a romantic dinner. It begins with a horse drawn taxi ride into the woods to a charming spot in the woods. I had a steak and husband had goulash, both delicious. Expensive but a great anniversary spot.

Four of us had a lovely meal here. Great service. There was a mix up on a bottle of wine and the waiter immediately replaced it, no fuss. Crab cake appetizer was delicious.

how close is it to Mission Point?
20 April 2017|
Response from GHKellie | Property representative |
Woods is not near Mission Point at a;;. We are located more toward the center of the island near the airport and Stonecliff.
How do customers hail the taxi for The Woods, and where does this taxi pick up? Are strollers (folded up) permitted on the taxi?
