It was a top 10 maybe top 5 worldwide ! The rest of the meal , wine and famous coconut cake was fabulous. Top drawer professional service and atmosphere ... a great finish to our trip.

Romantic fine dining in courtyard. Also had dinner at the bar, and breakfast in the dinning room, was never disappointed.

Such proper and yet warm service!!! We thoroughly enjoyed this five star meal and service for our clients. Escargot with grits started our experience off with a bang. We recommend the scallops and the coconut cake! This would be a lovely place for a special occasion and even sitting out on the veranda.

Very pretty place- signage and grounds. It was later night and we just wanted to try the famous coconut cake- so we got a slice to go to bring back to our hotel room. Well- it’s a pretty penny at $13.50 a slice- wow! But, it was phenomenal-moist, buttery and plenty of flakes of coconut. Did not disappoint

My husband and I dined here for our anniversary and it was superb. This is definitely a five-star restaurant and not appropriate for children. The ambiance is warm and sophisticated and they do have a charming outdoor patio that is magical at night. Everything from appetizers to dessert was expertly prepared and service is excellent. They are famous for their coconut cake and it lived up to its reputation. A great dining experience for a special occasion -- be prepared, it is pricey but you get what you pay for.
