We followed the Trip Advisor advice and had a delicious dinner of their fantastic Paella and a Caesar salad with fresh grilled lobster. Both were excellent. Our server, Adam, was friendly and gracious.

Palm Passage is a walkway as opposed to a street. There's a big "Palm Passage" sign at the waterfront end. A map would be helpful here.
Do they take credit or is it cash only,thanks
