Unforgettable evening!!

The food was absolutely amazing!! So was the service and the endless drinks! ? we were never waiting too long for the next course and the 3 hours was the perfect amount of time to enjoy the evening! The staff was so friendly and felt very welcoming and funny! They offered to take photos and even made us a special desert for our anniversary! Beautiful views and definitely an unforgettable night ?❤️❤️

Missed cruise and dinner

Unfortunately due to out of our control with the flights being delayed, we were unable to make the booking, requested if we could rebook on something else as we were returning on Monday, they never got back to us until we were at the airport, and if we wanted to rebook there will be a fee of $60 per person. Terrible service.
