We, (3 couples) booked this restaurant for the final night of our holiday. It is quite a big / busy restaurant on the Marriott Complex but it could only be described as average and we concluded that we would have enjoyed a meal in our apartment somewhat more. We may have been unlucky as there appeared to be only 2... More

We found the restaurant to be a massive let down. Considering the actual Marriott resort is of excellent quality this restaurant is just not up to the job. The staff are miserable and not motivated on any level. Talk a walk and get much better for much less.

Marriott should be ashamed of themselves. We just stopped by with the kids on our first day at the resort and ordered some late afternoon snacks. The "gambas" were frozen shrimp drowning in oil, the fish sticks were clearly frozen and out of a box, the hot dogs must have come from a can (so soggy you could cut them... More

We have just been for dinner tonight. The last night before closing until the end of December. This restaurant, on the edge of the sea, with great views could be so much better. It is very overpriced for the portion sizes. We ordered mussels in a red curry sauce. 13€ and were luke warm and not served with any bread.... More

We went at the beginning of our stay. The restaurant was not full, probably 25% full. The staff were not very attentive, we were shown to a table but not asked about drinks from about 15-20 mins, then there was quite a delay in bringing the drinks, and there was only 4 of us. The food quality was very good... More

This restaurant, part of the Marriott Beach Resort, is a very pleasant place to eat, directly overlooking the beach. We were lucky enough to be able to sit on the patio (with heaters) and listen to a very pleasant vocalist while eating some very local food. We shared a veggie pizza (OK) and onion soup (very good). Prices were very... More
