It is simply the best food we have ever had. Every single plate of food is prepared with so much thought and care. The wine selection is excellent. The service from the staff is out of this world. They have a deck outside with beautiful views. The open kitchen is a welcome surprise. The elevator music is appropriate and soothing.... More

Best steak I have had in many a year. Open kitchen is a great idea and chefs are truly there to ensure you have a great experience. Service staff are second to none. The whole concept is refreshing and pleasant to experience. Congratulations to Chef Jade and his team.

We still rate as the best in the Montecasino complex. The staff are always friendly and attentive, nothing is too much, especially on a quite Friday evening when you want a romantic dinner for two.

Beware, Punchinello's WILL have your kryptonite! I really wish I had a second, third and fourth stomach because I could not indulge the entire variety of the amazing spread of the buffet breakfast. As presented best by the wise words of Arnold, "I'll be back!"

I love this restaurant. They never fail to disappoint. It is a nice ambience; outstanding food prepared and presented with panache; and the service is absolutely world-class. My waiter, Shaddrack, REMEMBERED that he had been my waiter last year when I visited. For dinner I had the slow cooked lamb shank and it was honestly the best I have ever... More
