Delicious food in a stunning setting
Having a veg partner and personally not being being a big meat eater, we really wanted to experience Cozido and were very skeptical about where to go for it. Enter Ali and Caroline. They offered a complete experience which included a trip to the cooking spot and pulling our own meals out of the earth..
The food was delicious and at no point did we feel that we were missing out by not eating meat. We also couldn’t have asked for a better setting, sitting amongst one of the world’s largest private gin collection 😍

Special thanks to Caroline and Ali for opening their doors to us, especially on Christmas when everything else on the island was shut and the awesome hospitality and an amazing experience!

Can’t wait to visit you guys again and stay on your estate this time around..:

Wow what a great thing as a vegan to be able to taste the local cuisine style! The food was so tasty and Caroline and Ali are great hosts. We even had vegan ice cream to finish and the gin on arrival was great! Thank you for a great experience.
