The view is great but the food is fantastic. Our favorite in west central Florida. Seafood to steak is the best. My personal favorite is the risotto. Let's not forget service.

This is an excellent restaurant. The food is wonderful but a little pricey. It is not somewhere you would eat every evening but is nice for a special occasion.
