Ate lunch here while our flight to Chile was delayed. The staff at the restaurant coped admirably with a planeload of passengers descending on them at lunchtime. Delicious food beautifully presented all while sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean. Best airport waiting room...More

We shared a lovely meal, excellent wine and dreamy dessert. Unfortunately the waiter explained that we could not have coffee, because ' the coffee machine is kaput!'
