This is a quaint Bay side restaurant with unique lighting, all seating open air with most tables near the water. Great place for sunsets. The food is tasty, the service a tad slow, and the setting is wonderful, yet breezy, so bring a light sweater during winter months. Try the Oreo cup dessert!

We went based upon recommendation for fresh fish. Well they did not have the snapper or mani that were on the menu. I ended up ordering pasta, very disappointing service and meal. I would not recommend.

This is now Costa Arena. Beautiful spot, but many problems. We are a group of 10 which was probably part of the problem. However it WAS all on 1 bill. We were seated quickly, but then waited a very long time for drinks. When they arrived they were wrong. Soup cold, and no spoons. Tuna tartar more like a paste.... More

Becoming one of my favorite places to eat. Great service. Mostly tables outside, but it is very nice in evening watching the sun set. We love the lamb dishes s And hopefully no other major changes.

Renamed, but still our favourite on resort restaurant. Setup beachside under the palms it's perfect for evening dining. The menu is varied but leans to seafood which has always been excellent. We go for the Spannish/ Irish coffee prep at the end of the meal is a show onto itself with flaming liquors. If you go on fiesta night you... More

We heard great things about this restaurant. We made a reservation, but upon our arrival, the hostess could not find it. A table was prepared nonetheless. The overall service was not on par with what we expected. The drinks took time to arrive and we were left alone for long periods of time - particularly at the end of our... More

As mentioned, this restaurant is renamed Costa Arena. Venue by the beach was lovely, particularly at sunset. Service was great no complaints, but the food was less than what the other reviewers experienced. Bread accompanied with spinach and plain butter were immediately on the table. Amuse bouche was pleasant and our appetizers were fine; shrimp egg roll (with far too... More

Wife and I were there on a Sunday evening on the first day after arrival. We wanted something where we didn't have to dress up but where the dining experience would be memorable. Punta Arena fit the bill and more! We both ordered the surf and turf with a filet mignon prepared to the point where one could nearly cut... More

My meal was amazing! The best dinner I had at the resort. The environment is romantic, we set up dinner at 8pm so we could see the sunset while dining. I had a Cajun mahi mahi and my husband had surf and turf. I wish I would have went more to this restaurant since it had a more seafood menu.

The food is really good, the environment is romantic, and the service is friendly, yet slow. Wonderful setting for sunsets over the bay during appetizers and then dinner among the palm trees on the deck with romantic lighting.
