    You will struggle to find a more beautiful view or location for a pub/restaurant. Totally stunning. The food is great too, so its a winning combination. Loved it and would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Dined here recently enjoy famille. Service average. Food mediocre. A party of approx 15 golfers entered the restaurant, embarrassing to see how the waiting staff fawned all over them. Regrettably our table did not merit the same treatment. Just a bit disappointing.

    Fantastic views across the bay, room was functional but bland, the bar was ok but not an extensive choice and the food was high quality but expensive for dinner and not a hearty breakfast. Good for a night stopover only.

    We stayed for 1 night in this quaint place on a stop over on our way to Valencia. Stunning views of the ocean. The food was great and all the staff so helpful. Perfect place for golfers as right beside the famous Waterville golf course....More
