We did not even realize that they had such delicious food. We went in for happy hour and stayed for dinner and a frozen drink. I tried the coconut chicken sandwich- it was delicious! I would highly recommend The Blue Print. It is a pina colada with blue curacoe, garnished with a pineapple wedge. Price was comparable to other restaurants... More

We had to convince our friends that lunch at a fancy hotel was a great idea, but afterwards they agreed we were right. The service and food were fabulous, and lunch prices may be a little more than average but still reasonable. Two of us had the fish tacos, which came recommended. Everything was beautifully presented. We also got to... More

Alfresco's is a nice casual hotel restaurant with a bar perfect for a meal associated with an active day. We enjoyed dinner. Our drinks were well made. Our bean buger (for the Vegan) and Angus burger (for the Carnivore) were delicious as was the Key Lime pie. Worth the money.

We stopped for a quick supper at Alfresco's. Headed to an event, this worked well for our purposes. This venue is not in the Vinoy main building, but is outside by the pool and courts. Apparently Alfresco's is known for their Cuban sandwich and fish tacos. We can confirm that both are good. The service was also good. However nothing... More

The service was outstanding and the fish tacos were amazing. I had them for both lunch and supper on one particular day. They did not spare the fish in the tacos and their sauce was awesome. mike and sandy

We chose this for our Anniversary dinner and was not disappointed! The special was fish and chips and it was cooked to perfection, light and crisp and pure delicious! My husband had the Cuban sandwich and it was terrific as well! Monica makes a mean margarita and is an absolute delight to be around, always like being with your best... More

From the moment our server, Matt, seated us he gave us the best attention, best information and looked after us superbly. The menu is varied and reasonably priced but make sure you leave room for desert. There's a wide variety of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic (if you have work in the afternoon). The seating is spaced so you're far... More

I enjoyed appetizers with friends before our meeting began. We had nachos, wings, etc. and it was all good. We made it back there a few times to enjoy cocktails. Good place to get caught up.

This is a small restaurant located inside the Vinoy. Nice place to grab a drink and a quick meal. Lots of TVs to watch sports. It is located close to the pool, so would be an ideal place in the summer to grab bites and still be close to the action
