A great boat ride destination for lunch on the beautiful patio overlooking Lake Muskoka. Lunch menu was excellent.

The restaurant at Taboo Resort, formerly Muskoka Sands Inn, is in a great location but the food isn't great, the service tends to be snobby, and the prices are way too high. What are you paying for: the view?

We have had several meals at the Taboo resort restaurant. They are kind of hit or miss. The meals can be tasty, the atmosphere can be nice (on a quiet day) but often times it feels understaffed. The service is just meh.
