The food was very good and the service prompt and attentive. Not inexpensive though. We'll have dinner again to this place.

We found this meal to be nice, not awesome. For the prices we expected awesome food & awesome service. We enjoyed several other dining options at the resort over this restaurant.

Had dinner after a sunset Camel ride and the steak was superb. Reasonable wine selection and friendly staff. Menu not extensive but all looked great. Rack of lamb looked amazing but happy with my choice of eye fillet.

This is our choice for a lovely dining experience. The service is superb and the meals are excellent. Only let down was that they did not have moscato, or other sweet wines that I prefer, but that did not spoil the meal.
