We visited Flames restaurant on October. It was a best month to enjoy Jacaranda.They serve buffet for weekend customers. Foods and dessert were average.

The view is amazing. The drinks are on the expensive side but the view more than makes up for this. I have only had dinner at flames once and the food was okay. I would definitely recommend sundowners here.
