What a disappointment. We had reservations for 3 months and were looking forward to a good experience, especially at a minimum of $140 a person. Beautiful view, and in a cave. But the most arrogant wait staff, rude, and such small unimpressive plates. NO BAR,...More

Have never encountered such poor customer service. Didn’t even make it to the restaurant- called the place to enquire about the accessibility for senior citizens and got the rudest response. Terrible!!

Worst service from start to finish. Below average food with 3 Michelin star prices. Such a shame as the restaurant itself is beautiful. They should sack all management and may be they have a chance to survive.

Obviously you're eating here because it's beautiful and has a lovely romantic atmosphere. The food & service is very average, and in fact they brought my husband the wrong meal and never came back to check on him so he just dealt with it. He...More
