We ate here two nights in a row as we were staying at the hotel. Cool spot with great views. Very popular with locals. Food was good but they consistently overlooked the steaks. Order them rare if you are hoping for medium.More

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.
