Meal Eaten: Breakfast/Brunch Lunch Dinner
Dan: Tuna Tartare - I found this to be spicy and tasty. In fact, it was almost a meal in itself.
Michelle: Savory Snails - I thought I'd try something different, and these snails were certainly different than anything I'd eaten in the past. The deep-fried fillo dough surrounding the snails was too oily. This is probably a dish I won't soon order again.
Dan: Dolphin Fillet with Saffron Potatoes - This was excellent. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a 9.
Michelle: Shrimp Caribe in Green Thai Coconut Sauce - I loved this meal. I would give it a 10!
Dan: Chocolate Pudding Brownie with Ice Cream and Rum Sauce - Good.
Michelle: Cheesecake - It was o.k.
The restaurant is the most beautiful either of us has ever visited. The waitstaff was unobtrusive but a little slow in taking our order. (This is where we ate on our wedding night.)Wine List? Yes No
