“A great experience”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

In general, it was a great experience. The food was very tasty and original and it was very well prepared and served. The service was much above average, maybe because we were almost the only customers! We went there off season for the hotel so this may justufy the fact that the one of the dishes and one of the wines were not available. Overall, we are very satisfied.

“A very good choice.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

I will leave aside the fact that the wine we ordered and one of the dishes was not available. The food was really very good. Excellent scallops and soft crab. Main dishes were also very well taken care of. The atmosphere was pleasant, though, due to low season there were only two more tables occupied. Service was very pleasant, polite and friendly. Yes, expensive, but worth while. The view, fantastic.

“Simply fantastic”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I can honestly say that this was one of the best meals I have ever eaten! My wife and I were staying at the hotel that this restaurant is situated within and like seafood so decided to give it a go. The food was excellent, the service was outstanding and the added extras were superb. We both started with tuna tarter which was brilliant with a dill dressing which was outstanding.
Before the starter arrived we were presented with bread and dips. Following the starter a amuse bouche was delivered which was very tasty.
For main course we ordered the prawns and the surf and turf. I am not sure why I ordered surf and turf as I have been constantly dissapointed on all the previous occasions when I have requested this dish in other restaurants but this time, in this restaurant it was just out of this world! I had veal with lobster and if you do go to this restaurant please try it. There were lots of other things on the menu alongside the catch of the day. We had a chilean sauvignon blanc with the meal which again was very good.
As it had been our anniversary during our stay the staff delivered and lovely cocktail to end the meal.
This is not a cheap place to eat but on reflection was worth the money.
