The location is nice and the atmosphere and architecture of the restaurant is gorgeous. The waiter will be a bit slow to show you your table but that will be the only negative thing about that place. When seated the waiting is short, Nice menu with good choices of food, i went for the Mahi Mahi, it was delicious! perfectly... More

I've been here 3 teams, the meat is so good but the service so bad. How is this possible? So strange... And the service charge is 15% but there is no service.

They let you choose your own lobster from the tank and cook it on the spot. The view of the beach while you are eating seafood is more than anyone can ask for, the menu variates from 10$ to almost 80$ if you go for a lobster. Good service and excellent environment

Great ambience, but fair service. The dancers were great, but that fact that I had a tough and not too tasty lobster ruined the visit for me.
