We went for a special dinner in our honey moon. The food was extremely nice and tasty yet the place (outdoor table with sea view) and host (Cesar- fabulous) really made the difference. Highly recommended for an incredible experience.

We had dinner here on two nights. Once with the snack menu sitting by the pool - hamburgers were great. Once in the more formal dining room inside. Meals and service were fantastic and a great wine list.

We were in the hotel and decided to eat always here. The food was very good and they were also able to do whatever the kids want. Think they were under staff and could improve the service.
