I have never seen a top resturant go down hill so fast . They now force you to have three courses and the calamari starter was poor . This resturant will not see me again it is overpriced for what you get after many brilliant meals and visits very disappointed

We came here for dinner as part of the first night of our honeymoon the restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. It couldn't have been more perfect. The food was interesting making it an experience rather than just another meal out. Fantastic if we lived a little closer than England we would definitely be back. We couldn't recommend... More

I came here on my birthday for the 6 course menu with my family, damn it was good. Every plate of food was tasty and done well. Staff are friendly and fun too. Another bonus, the bathrooms are wonderful and clean (it matters to me). The one thing I could critique you on though is your lighting, we could hardly... More

What an absolute pleasure to dine in this restaurant! The food is absolutely brilliant! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The choice is either a 3 course or 6 course meal. Definitely highly recommended.

From the moment you walk in to the time where you eat your desert, it is an experience in itself. You must try the wine pairing menu as you will taste SA's best at a reasonable price. Should be in your top 5 with TTK.

This cosy restaurant is easily missed but for the bouncer on the gate. Booking in advance is essential, and once you are through the gate, the courtyard and fountain are just so romantic! We chose the tasting menu with wine and we enjoyed everything we were given, however there were some minor issues which prevented us from rating this as... More

Despite the French name, the menu offers more of an international mash-up. It’s located in a touristy looking seaside community in a mansion converted to a restaurant, so there is seating in various rooms up and downstairs as well as an outdoor patio in a walled garden. The atmosphere is intimate and casual. The food was generally tasty and service... More
