We've come here a few times for a poolside lunch as it's a nice environment for sitting outside when the weather allows. The menu is fairly standard poolside fare of burgers, wraps, pasta and pizzas. Definite 5 star prices for a pool bar but certainly not 5 star quality. Don't get me wrong, nothing has ever been terrible but it's... More

A nice place to have shisha outdoors with a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. The service is somehow poor; last order was very early. :D

reserved a table a week before but table was not ready. our table was set in the corner and could barely see each other. we requested maybe they could have a candle or something at least. the only candle provided was that on the birthday cake during our dessert. understaffed. the band was amazing though. beef pepper steak was delicious.

Excellent Bbq with the groupon voucher! Nice selection of meet. Lamb hamburger was delicious! Quiet location. Staff extremely inattentive. 2 senior staff member with suits (ahmed and somebody else) were arguing loudly while we had our dinner... Totally unprofessional behavior!

The service was slow and inattentive, understaffed or badly managed. Had to get up and find the menu ourselves and eventually found a German language version (ok if you are German). Food was slow in coming and was tasteless (Chicken (Reconstituted) Burger). Banana and Strawberry shake was not too energetic. Had to go up to the pool kiosk and ask... More
