Great place if you don't mind spending a few bucks. The ambiance by the pool is fantastic. The service and food are top notch. Nice place for a special occasion. Enjoy the firepit next to the restaurant after dinner for a nightcap.

enjoyed the variety of food available. I had a few meals here as I was staying at the resort and often ended up getting 4-6 small plates and salads which gave me the chance to try lots of different food. At night the table I was at was ridiculously dark to the point where I couldn't really see what I was eating which did annoy me a bit. Overall a good place to eat.

We were guests of the Colony Palms Hotel. We had lavender mojitos, a 5-cheese plate starter as well as the roasted garlic hummus when we first checked in. For dinner, we had the grilled romaine caesar salad, sweet and sour shrimp & veggie soup, seared scallops and tandoori Jidori chicken. Everything was awesome, with the exception of the tandoori chicken - most AWESOMEST chicken dish we have ever had. The next morning, we had the lemon pancakes, 3 egg omelette and oatmeal for breakfast. What wonderful culinary experiences we had all at the same restaurant. Most people tend to dismiss hotel restaurants as simply a convenience for hotel guests, but this place is such a gem with truly great food, service and ambience.

The restaurant itself is lovely for dinner, you can sit inside the cute purple dining room, or outside around the scenic pool and garden. The menu is very basic, american, not too inventive but executed well with fresh tasting ingredients. Service was good, attentive enough without being intrusive. The price is a bit high for what you are actually getting in the cuisine department, but overall a worthwhile experience if you are looking for a nice dinner.

For breakfast get the yogurt/fruit - delicious. For lunch, skip the salads (and do not order chicken on it - dry and very salty). For dinner I had the salmon which was fine. Husband had jidori chicken which was delicious.
