Lovely ambiance and great food. Gluten free options available as well. However it was a bit dark so could not really see what we were eating. Also the driver who picked us from the hotel drove really fast and carelessly. But over all we had a good meal.

The environment was great, service good. The cheese cake was amazing but greatly overpriced!!However the food wasnt all that good and the portions are overpriced. Didnt find value for money.

The environment is amazing, the location is perfect, however the service need some improvement. One waiter asked me to move to the bar to have my desert to give the other guests who did not book my table. This was very disappointing and I gave the same comment to the waiter.

Return visit to the beautiful restaurant. The experience this time was not good at all. Took 1 hour for our food and it was disappointing as it was cold and blunt.

We had catch of the day and garlic prawns that were rather plain.

The cave prawn cocktail is really nice though.

The location of this restaurant is so beautiful, dinner in a cave and under the stars felt like a once in a lifetime experience. Neither of us could fault the food, it was cooked to perfection and so tasty… starter, mains for 2 with 2 glasses of wine each came to 8000 (including tip). So not the cheapest but we felt worth every penny.
Such friendly and attentive staff, we felt so well looked after. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
