“Beautiful setting”
Reviewed 9 July 2015

We have been to Amanzi on a number of occasions and generally are satisfied with both the meal and beautiful surroundings. We visited last week and had a very good evening. The food was good and the service from our waiter and attention from the owner was exceptional. We sat on the veranda as we prefer to be outside and a patio heater and blankets were provided as it was a chilly winter night. We will certainly keep coming to Amanzi as it is one of our favourite restaurants and we are always well looked after.

Dear Annette680

Thank you for your review. We appreciate all forms of feedback and yours is no exception. We believe your experience was a one off, and certainly not the norm at Amanzi. We do try and correct both service and food issues when they arise if we are made aware. We cook all food to order and it is kept on a hot plate before being served so complaints of cold food are a rarity. Sadly we operate in an environment of high overheads and intermittent power, so our prices are partly a reflection of this. Our policy is to utilise top grade produce at all times which is often more expensive. We assure you of a better experience in line with the high recommendation you were given on your next visit.

The gardens are stunning too. Beautiful surroundings xxx
