Beautiful restaurant located inside the gorgeous Radison. If you go, sit outside near the pool and take in all the scenery its gorgeous. The staff were super friendly and were very catering to my 4 year old. The food was lovely, a mixture of different Asian cuisines. Lovely presentation.

Dinner and drinks were delicious, staff was friendly, but disappeared sometimes because there was only one other party being served. The Salmon was perfectly cooked and all dishes were beautifully presented. Drinks are extremely expensive: $14 for margaritas/daiquiris. But I guess they have to charge so much because they're in The Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel next to the pool. You... More

Ordered 2 Club sandwiches with 2 fresh orange juices. Requested that one of the sandwiches be prepared without meat and suggested that maybe they could put an extra egg onto it instead of the chicken and bacon. Asked for confirmation the waiter had understood and repeated the order of one sandwich without meat and one as on the menu. Waited... More

The food at Kontiki was way above our expectations. The prices are good. It's a Tuesday night and you don't expect many people in a restaurant so we were the only table. The staff had no idea the grams of the beef tenderloin no idea of accompaniments. She didn't serve any bread to us. Our bill arrived faster than a... More

Menu is ok, and ambience is nice although it was empty when we went there. The food when it arrived was nice, but can't help feeling that it's a poor mans version of Trader vics.
