Ate here last week with the family. We ate in the evening so we didn't get the real benefit of the view. The restaurant was very quiet so it did understandably lack a little atmosphere; the service was good and the surroundings were certainly different, if a little confused in places ...? The food and wine were both excellent, but... More

Beautiful setting overlooking the plain ad sea, lovely food though mainly fish. The lobster risotto was a great hit with our group. Catered well got gluten free choices. Service excellent and discreet. Well worth a visit.

We were very disappointed visiting this place((( We were expecting beautiful dishes with excellent taste, but in fact we paid almost 100 euros for two tasting menus that we had to return to the kitchen, because all the food looked awful and tasted the same. For the desert it was supermarket ice cream. We complained, but didn't receive even apologies.

The food is great, outstanding view, and the service excellent - this is clearly not a cheap eat but you get what you pay for - an excellent experience. Certainly worth a visit.

It's a beautiful restaurant, and the service is good but the food is just not worth the trip. It was disappointing as I wanted to take may family somewhere special for our last night. I wish I had read the trip advisor comments before going.

We have eaten here many times and have always enjoyed the food and the restaurant. This year however, we found that the prices were very high compared to the sizes of the portions. We were hungry after eating a three course meal... The food is absolutely tasty, just wish there were more of it...
