Went for breakfast and the restaurant was not that busy but they had lots of bookings for brunch later and the kitchen just could not cope
Food was very good but waited an hour for the meal after ordering.
Waiters and managers were very attentive and apologetic, decided not to eat their again during our stay

Not sure anyone saw me, but I enjoyed the people watching. I nursed one drink for almost two hours. Beautiful spot on a beautiful day.

The restaurant has lovely sea views and offers seating both inside and outside. Our party had the blackened tuna and scallops which were both excellent. The service was very good and attentive. The wines by the glass are way over priced but other we enjoyed both our dinner evenings. When we visited the hotel, the restaurant was opened only for breakfast and dinner. It would have been great if they also offered lunch as the bar menu for lunch is very limited.
