Despite the beautiful view and decor of the resturant the food was dull, I had the tempura hake and it did not taste fresh at all I was very disappointed. For the price I paid I expect the best quality.

Attended a friend's 60th birthday celebration with over 70 guests at the restaurant. The management and staff went out of their way to ensure an unforgetable evening. The food was excellent and the service fast, efficient and friendly. Well done Butterfly Blu!
