The outside dinning area is a lovely place to enjoy your meal in the summer with live music. I think the food has gone downhill a little bit for the price.

One of the first eateries that would come to mind if you want to commemorate an occasion must be Valparaiso, and indeed we have been dining there for 28 of the 33 years that brother’s Raffaele and Vittorio Morelli have been open. The dining area consists of a main room and 5 connected satellite rooms, with a dance floor come... More

Our main courses were even more impressive my husbands fillet steak was 1 of the best he's ever had "Peles favourite dish" strips of fillet cooked with mushrooms in... More

We were invited to a birthday party here this past Saturday. The evening began with drinks and appetizers in the enclosed patio and bar area. Although it was windy and quite cold out we were cozy with the heaters on. The atmosphere is pleasant with the fountain and plants all around. As it was a large party, I can't speak... More

Welcomed by all staff, especially Rafael. The atmosphere is relaxing and adds to the overall experience. We hadn't been to one of the "Special" menu evenings before and it proved to have a good choice for all 3 courses. There wasn't any difference in quality or quantity from the A La Carte dishes we have usually had. The food was... More
