Not sure which to feature, the location or the food. Together they make for a great experience. We lucked out with a great private nook on the edge of the outdoor veranda.

We come here for happy hour and sometimes for dinner. The view is spectacular and the entertainment is usually pretty good. I would stick to cocktails and appetizers. I am usually disappointed in the meals. But definitely worth the view!
