“Eh.”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

The best part of the meal was the warm bread (but only 3 slices for 2 people - like a foccacia bread) and the passion fruit butter. The pasta (I had fettucine with white wine/cream sauce and lobster) sounded good but the pasta and the lobster were a little overcooked. The best part of the evening: we were seated outside near a planter wall with trimmed plants - and we had a little 'visitor' toward the end of our meal - a rather large mouse or maybe a rat )(a la Ratatouille I guess). He didn't jump on the table or anything - just scared the living daylights out of me. Okay meal. Nothing special.

“Great Pasta !!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

True traditional Italian cuisine. Definitely could tell that fresh ingredients are being used. Ambience amazing. Ask to be seated outside next to pond. Very romantic. The dish to order is Fettucine All'Aragosta. Pasta with olive oil, garlic and white wine with lobster.Highly recommend. Chefs originate from Italy.

“Splendid”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

In an area with few good restaurants Azul is a welcome addition. The restaurant is visually stunning inside and out with the outside tables overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds. But it is the food you come for and you will not be disappointed. Good drinks to start, an excellent wine list and a varied menu with entrees that border on expensive but not outrageous with sufficient choices to please all palates including a nice selection of fresh fish. Service staff is knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. The pace is relaxed and you can sit back and enjoy a very pleasant evening.

“EXCELLENT”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Food and atmosphere were excellent. Wait staff were polite without being overly stuffy or filling you with "Aloha's".

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

This restaurant is so lovely! Everywhere I looked was beautiful. It has tables both inside & out. It is in a hotel (where we were staying) so I was happy to see that it is private yet not really secluded. The landscaping is so nice around the side of the hotel where it is. You can see the ocean from certain tables. The food was delicious & the service top-notch for us. I read what someone said about the ray pool - I can see where that might be a bit smelly (although I never smelled it in my week's stay at the hotel). If it concerns you, ask to sit elsewhere or better yet, go take a look (smell) at the tables near the rays & decide for yourself. It's such a nice restaurant, I'd hate for people to miss out simple because a few people went on particularly smelly days :)
