Enjoyed the live music while sitting on the patio. Ordered the white blend and it was delicious. The calamari with yo unique sauce is a MUST! I would skip the halibut, wasn't the best and overlooked. This was the best restaurant at suncadia.

A must restaurant experience when visiting Suncadia Resort...BUT make sure you have reservations at least 2 weeks in advance on weekend evenings for dinner. Delicious food. Fun staff. Great ambiance. Will return again.
