My girlfriend and I just booked this for our upcoming trip. Flying Fish is currently our favorite restaurant on property, so this seemed like a no-brainer this time. Has anyone done this recently to shed some light on the types of dishes served? How was the experience? Feel free to add in anything else.:thumbsup2

For my girlfriend and I the cost came to $314 and change for both of us ($157 each) including tax and gratuity. The price in October is slightly more than the price now. The few pictures I have tracked down and few reviews I have been able to find make it seem like the cost is a bargain.

Redwitch, your most recent menu looks fantastic. Enjoy it again later this month (unless you already went, in which case do share :thumbsup2)!
