If you are looking to catch the sunset while you dine with great food I encourage you to order Cafe food from the Tiki Bar and then pick up your meal from the Cafe.

We went here for my wife's 60th birthday dinner. They were very accommodating letting us bring in our own cake and flowers. The food was so good that we went back two days later for dinner.
