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.

We tried dinner one evening. My husband's striploin had little flavour. If he had known the "greens" (kale and zucchini) were so similar to the accompanying salad, he would have made another selection. Thank goodness there were toppings on the boathouse burger (which 2 of us had), because that was pretty dull as well. The garlic aioli really livened it up. One of our friends had the shrimp po-boy, and thought it was okay.
We brought back to our unit the chocolate mousse cake, and it was definitely not worth the $10 for the sliver that we got.
We are wondering if the chef had left for the season, and we had a replacement?
Nevertheless, we came back for breakfast because of the convenience. Our friend ordered the omelet, and the server indicated that she could have as many choices as wanted for the fillings. After choosing around 5 (including the special request for extra mushrooms), when it came to the table, it was very thin (not fluffy like we are used to) and the mushrooms were definitely not prominent. Our friend had the granola, which was okay; I had the eggs benedict with the smoked trout, which was recommended the evening before by our server. What a disappointment!! I couldn't figure out where the hollandaise sauce was, asked for more, and when it was specially made and brought to the table, it just looked like clarified butter. This is not the creamy hollandaise sauce that I am used to.
The only thing this place had going for it was the view.

On our arrival, we were left to wander until we found a server and asked if we could just seat ourselves outside on the patio overlooking the water. After waiting for 10 minutes, my husband went to find someone so we could order drinks. The hostess (we presume) came out to serve us. (there was no one else on the patio!) We ordered nachos and chicken wings---nothing to write home about there! Overall experience was underwhelming and disappointing, especially considering where we were!!

Worst lunch ever! We paid $90 for disgusting and dry nachos (how can you mess up nachos!), horrible fettuccine with dry chicken, decent fish tacos and one drink. The service was mediocre at best. Take a 10-minute drive from the resort and visit all the different restaurants around, so much better and way more economical!
