The restaurant is located on the second floor of  Movenpick Hotel. They have indoors as well as outdoor by the pool seating which includes cabanas. Beware both outdoor and indoor have different menus for the same restaurant. We sat inside simply because it was more cooler and had an extra glam to their interiors. You really appreciate their interiors for their decorated walls, different lighting and comfy seats with a decent sized crowd which makes you feel very comfortable at this restaurant.

For the mocktails we were happy with Virgin Hurricane(passion fruit, lime, orange, pineapple, syrups) than the walk mocktail which was dominated by the mango completely. The onion soup was fantastic. Everything about it was just perfect. The crab cake had a nice scrumptious touch to it with different flavors sitting on top of the crab cakes. But too little that you might not be happy with the portion size.

This is where I met one of the best cooked beef. 48 hours Braised Wagyu Beef Cheeks is a must try. It’s one of the best tasting beef I’ve had in sometime. Super tender and succulent that both of us wanted to eat most of it. I give an A+ to this dish. I’ve heard a lot good about their burgers specially the open faced burger since I am not a big fan of foie gras I chose the simple classic burger which came with a nice bun and a thick juicy patty that can keep you happy.

The tenderloin was a beautiful looking steak but somehow after eating the 48 hours braised Wagyu beef cheeks I just felt there was less juice in this one. It was surely a nice chunk of tender beef but not as tender and tasty as the 48 hours braised beef cheeks. The roasted root vegetables mixed salad side was a flavorful delicious salad and is a recommended side.

When I saw the name triple chocolate I was expecting lot of chocolate but this was a chocolate that was on diet 🙁 Really couldn’t feel the rich taste of chocolate but the orange chiboust along with the chocolate felt different and their home made ice cream that came along was very good which actually brings the dessert back to life. The blueberry creme brulee came warm and was a top class creme brulee. For the coffee we were surprised and happy to see the chocolates and cheesecakes coming as sides. The cheesecake was definitely a delight. Click here to visit their official webpage. Click pictures to see them in full screen view.
