The reviews for this place don't do it justice, it's amazing. Friendly attentive staff, wonderful food, good value for money. Highly recommend, we managed to get a table without booking, but we were the only ones.....book to ensure you aren't disappointed.

We've eaten here every year for the last 5 years we've stayed at the resort and always had the same great food and service. The lamb shank and mash was very good and the homemade cheesecake is just superb! Definitely recommended!
