Fabulous, beautiful restaurant in exquisite surroundings. The staff are friendly and the food is outstanding every course a treat to look forward too. Nothing to fault, go along, it's amazing. Perhaps a little more expensive than some but worth it for something a little special, but nothing outlandish in price.

Have spent many a lovely afternoon/evening at this restaurant while holidaying here over the past two years. Location is perfect, especially for nature lovers, with sparrows in particular and house martins, ducks, ducklings and Koi in the surrounding water way. Great 'Deck' menu for all palettes including vegan/vegetarian. Set menu is good value at just under 20 Euros, would recommend booking in advance just for peace of mind. Ellie the restaurant manager and her team are extremely professional, friendly and helpful.
Only disappointment this stay was change of opening hours for Deck bar in favour of Croc Club. In my opinion Deck bar is far nicer to eat, drink and relax in. Desert Springs should revert to previous opening hours for the Deck bar.
