Wonderful evening with superb food, especially seafood, innovative dishes and great cocktails and wine list. Worth it. - tripadvisor Reviewer February 2018
Buffet is perfection! Outdoor seating surrounded by tropical plants and the pool. So much scrumptious food to choose from- and we went on a Monday morning. Definitely worth it. Kids are half price too. Would go back tomorrow if I could. - yelp Reviewer December 2017
Delicious and fresh! Beautiful presentation and great menu selection. It was the highlight of our visit to Miami Beach area. We sat outside on the deck which was lovely. - opentable ReviewerJanuary 2018
