This is a beachfront restaurant on a raised sandy platform within the Ambre hotel grounds. The restaurant is not part of the hotel’s all-inclusive package and customers will incur an additional charge for dining here.

However, we were on a honeymoon package and the hotel includes one meal here as part of that package. We were presented with the menu which is minimal with only two choices although anyone with a special diet (vegetarian in our case) will then be presented with an alternative menu again with two choices. The menu also changes on a daily basis so you can select ahead of the meal.

I opted for a starter of smoked marlin, bisque, seafood platter and chocolate brownie. Whilst my wife opted for the vegetarian selection of the day. We also purchased a bottle of prosecco at a typical restaurant cost.

The meal was very well received and thoroughly enjoyed. The setting was very romantic and although others were eating here the numbers were low enough that we had sufficient quiet and atmosphere for a romantic meal on the sand. Less than half the tables were occupied however so this may vary on night to night although I never saw the restaurant busy in my stay at the hotel.

The service was excellent throughout with the waiting staff and manager checking we were happy with our meal at regular intervals without being intrusive. Also at the end of the night the Chef came around each table checking that everyone had enjoyed their meals and listening to any comments although these were all positive on the night in question.

After the meal we (and other couples celebrating an occasion) were presented with a token cake which although it was a lovely touch was totally unnecessary after the size of the meal we had just eaten.
