Food is as expected- nothing but scrumptious- but the really outstanding reason to visit is the service. Top notch from start to finish. Great bartenders, an excellent waiter, Paul-“from-St. Paul” and a very gracious GM, Dominic. They are what make good... exceptional. Oh- and yes, do try the butter cake- it’s delicious. More

Truly enjoyed the outstanding service by Lena and the overall quality of the meal. Everyone working was very personal and had an excellent level of service while we dined. My blackened mahi was outstanding and the bbq shrimp were great. Out of everything we ordered, I wasn’t a fan of their crab cakes, their presentation had me feeling like these were frozen & premade and lacked flavor (not saying that they’re not freshly made, I did not ask) but was far below my expectation for a seafood restaurant. Would definitely go back and try again. More

International | Long Beach, Long Beach / Catalina

The food was great. Service was great as well. Noise was a bit, due to live band playing in an enclosed space. Maybe having the windows open up might help some of the echo inside the ship. Granted its a cruise ship, but maybe they could have other singer out there with a little bit better vocal chords. Was seated towards the end part of the dining hall, where up towards the front had a lot of open table that no one was seated in the duration we ate there. For a table of 3, we do not need a round table for 8. Also the legs of that round table could be a little bit hidden and not occupy one side of the table where it would be awkward for one person to sit. Nit picking but other than those, food was good. Especially how big those shrimps were. And for the price, I don’t think it shouldn’t cost that much for a brunch. More

Latin American | Long Beach, Long Beach / Catalina

We visited for Mother's Day lunch. The food is very authentic, as if you were having dinner in someone's home. This food is not spicy, nor is it supposed to be, and just flavored very softly with natural ingredients. We enjoyed the chicken stew and especially the grilled steak, like carne asada. Our server was very friendly and super helpful in navigating the menu. The ambiance is very colorful, and it looks like it would be a hopping party place on Friday or Saturday night. Parking is very tight in the neighborhood, and there is no an attached parking lot. I just kept driving around a bit and finally found one a block away. Not too bad. Just drop your companions first if need be, and then go look! The plantain chips are excellent with the warm salsa they serve. More
