All of the food we tried was amazing. We ordered many different things and shared. The server was friendly and accommodated all of our needs. I would definitely go back. The lamb and hummus were my favourites.

1. Which hotel? Chef Abod Restaurant is a mile from any hotels. 2. When? It is just about freezing today, snow is forecast for tomorrow, so I'd advise against the beach until maybe next May.
