Just had a fabulous meal here whilst on holiday. Food great, staff superb and a lovely evening. Well worth the trip up the narrow roads to get there. Already booked in again for tomorrow night. Best place to eat we have found all week.

We visited today with our dog and were warmly welcomed in a very safe environment. The staff are exceptional and we had a fantastic couple of meals. The location and vista are very appealing, I would certainly recommend a visit here.
