    Terrible. The worst service ever. After waiting 20 minutes for drinks one of us went to the bar to get them. Food is mediocre at best and costs 4 times what it should. Atmosphere as time went on felt more and more like a set of the Bachelor with lots of loud drunk bachelorette types. The place looks good at first but don’t be fooled like we were.

    Went here for lunch. Food was great. It was kind of ridiculous that they don't serve unsweetened iced tea. My friend doesn't drink alcohol or soda and wanted to have an iced tea. I had to suggest ordering a hot tea with a glass of ice. Had to ask for the glass of ice twice. Don't get me started on the flies. Other than that, great time.

    I loved the aesthetics of the Sands restaurant since I saw it! I planned a brunch for my friends bachelorette breakfast. We were a small group that wasn’t loud or obnoxious. And since we sat down the waiter seemed annoyed with us. We had to ask multiple times for things for our order as the food was pretty bland. The waiter refused to split the bill yet the waiter behind us happily split his table. It was not a great experience for the amount of money we spent.

    We tried to sit out side but…..we were bothered by the flies. It took longer then it should have to receive a simple cocktails. Dinner was just ok…. I had the pork tenderloin with 3 very tiny dollops of basil polenta no vegetables on the plate. My daughter had the salmon ….. the salmon was hot but the vegetables and potatoes were cold. It was nice trying something new but I would not return.

    When you stay at a resort, you always hope the restaurant will be good enough to make you want to dine there more than once. Not so with the Pink Cabana. While the environment and service are delightful, the food is not. The chef was apparently trying out a new menu and clearly, he/she was shooting to do the kind of high-concept fare typically found at places hoping for a Michelin star. I ordered the pork medallions and I kid you not: on a large, rectangular plate, there were three (3) medallions spaced 4 inches apart, each measuring 2". That's it. AND IT WAS THE MAIN DISH. While our server was sympathetic, there was no offer to remove the dish from our bill, just the offer of a couple of mediocre glasses of wine. If you are in the least bit hungry, do not eat here. The cocktails, however, a good, albeit overpriced.

    Under a new chef a year or so ago, this restaurant keeps getting better and better. Moroccan inspired dishes like the Pescatarian Tagine are refreshingly distinct and delectable. Friendly service and beautiful ambiance. Not inexpensive, so be prepared, but this has become our favorite restaurant in the Valley.

    We Waited a full hour from order to entree delivery. Fish tangine had 1 shrimp 1 scallop & a nice piece of salmon . The couscous was a mushy soup in the bottom. So many green olives capers and fibrous artichoke hearts that were all pretty acidic and almost sour. Nothing in the dish balanced it. His filet was good but the prices $$$$ OMG .
