I would say maybe 20 minute drive. Golden Eye is right near Santa Maria Island on the accompanying map to this page. They may come get you and bring you back.

We will be at Couples TI second week in June '17. Would like to have dinner with you one night. What is the best way to make reservations? Also, I saw that the restaurant is not far from the resort, is it advisable to walk or should we get a cab? Looking forward to seeing what we have heard so much about.
