    one of the many good things about this forum is that folks are respectful and all opinions are welcomed and appreciated.

    ultimately trebor has some decisions to make.

    LOL. OK all the names in a hat and draw the winner from there. Let's blame it on the hat! Unless it's perfect and then it's all about the research that I did!

    A differing opinion from the valued member I've quoted...... I loved the food and atmosphere at Marina Pirata.

    When I saw the prices on their menu I thought "this can't be all that great". However, they proved me wrong. Loved the food, loved the setting. IMO....worth the taxi ride and better than Marandi's.

    So many opinions....that's why there are so many restaurants! Not everyone is looking for the same thing.

Yes, it's good food and the prices are reasonable but it's not in the same category as the other 3 as far as food. I would pay for a taxi to the other 3 but not for Mirana Pirata if you're looking for the whole experience with upscale food. Again, just my opinion (and yes, I can be a food snob at times...but I'm also comfortable having a great pizza on occasion, too. LOL!)

    And if you want some waterfront dining experiences without the hefty taxi fare, you could also consider Matthew's and Passions which are both located in the low rise hotel area.

    Guess, I'll cross B55 off the list, maybe I'll replace it with Queens Bar when we're in town shopping? Also, I have a gift certificate for Gianni's, we'll go cause I won't want to waste $100, but I haven't been hearing a lot of positives. With low expectations maybe it will work out.

    Giannis was jam packed every night we walked by in June. By far the busiest restaurant we were in besides Marina Pirata and Passions.
