“Views, Luxury and Great Food”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great Italian Restaurant with the service you expect being linked to Reids Palace. The staff were so attentive without feeling too much. My wife is a vegetarian and they made a special meal of her liking and taste.
They have a great cellar and menu choice. There are fantastic views with a great setting. Recommend for a nice romantic meal.

“Best Meal Ever”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We were looking for somewhere special to celebrate our 35 th wedding anniversary and Cipriani's exceeded our expectations.We were seated on the terrace looking out over the Atlantic .The food ,especially crab meat Venetian style was out of this world.The service from the head waiter downwards was exemplary .We had arrived slightly early and in conversation I mentioned it was our anniversary.To our great surprise a cake was produced and unlike in the UK we did not have to pay for it.

A peerless experience.Thank you Cipriani's .

“Loved it”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Being fed up of the all inclusive wine and set menus and unable to do the afternoon tea we ate here last night.
AMAZING. The view was breathtaking although we didn't eat until 9:30 so it went dark quickly.
The service was lovely! I loved it so much I'm going back on my last night.
This isn't cheap and was the most expensive meal we had on the island but you get what you pay for. Lovely service, lovely view and lovely food and my partner doesn't usually enjoy pasta dishes.
If you have some holiday money left over it's worth a visit.

“I could have eaten everything on the menu.”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

The late TV Chef Keith Floyd would have enjoyed this place (he may have done so?): Intelligent and informal, in a going-on-safari loose linens and summer shoes way. Maitre d’ is gallant and engaging, whist the waiting staff are measured, calm, professional. The cliff-top view is simply stunning, slim iron railings separating the forward tables from the sheer drop to the rolling Atlantic far below. Later someone will come round with blankets should the evening breeze pick up.

However one doesn’t go to a restaurant just for the view; and if one invokes the name of Cipriani then certain standards are expected. True to form these were met in Spades.

After G&T and Campari Soda, we went for the Lobster Linguini and the Carpaccio of Beef. The lobster (3 large pieces) was tender and served with perfectly cooked pasta and a sauce that must have taken days to make; such was its richness. The beef super thin, fragile and of excellent quality, served (our choice) with the Cipriani sauce.

After that an equally well executed Tagliata and Roasted Turbot for mains.

To say that the wine was a very drinkable ‘house red’, does it an injustice. We went for the robust middle of the three house reds at, from memory, Euro44 a bottle.

I finished with a beautifully smooth grappa.

In some ways this is simple Italian cooking; but what precision cooking; and then add in the view; and the great staff…Book in advance!
