Food and service is good but pricey. Expect to pay over $100 for dinner for a couple. Good for tourists but as a local, don't go there much. Has a romantic vibe but no views.

We went twice to this restaurant during our four nights on this strip. The ravioli is fabulous as well as their beef. The setting is lovely as they have the jungle on the back. The service is attentive and friendly. Highly recommended.
