We dined 2 nights in a row and had the same menu and soup option offered, we would have liked to have different options the 2nd night. Servers were very polite and welcoming however they were to quick to clear plates for next course whilst still chewing on last mouthful of food. Felt a little watched at times as they stand to see everyone at their tables but would recommend being a little more discreet. Food quality was very good and we were pleased to dine in the Dune restaurant and we would eat there again.

The Dune restaurant lacks atmosphere, the background music really needs to be changed. why would anyone want to be listening to loud upbeat pop music whilst dining? we asked for a medium steak it came out well done. we are not the kind of people to complain so very nicely told the waiter (think he was the manager). His response was 'it looks medium to me' this is never the way you should speak to a customer. I was very shocked at his response. This automatically ruined are evening and made us feel very uncomfortable. a new steak took very long to come out, so we didn't even end up eating together. no one even bothered to check back on our table. also Vegetarian option bland, was literally 3 tiny pieces of butternut squash and a cracker. I just feel the reasturant is trying to be something its not.

Arrived on 14 February with my best friend for a spa break. We were the only none couple in the whole restaurant! The service, particularly from Raquel, was great - a perfect balance between professional and laid back. The food was superb. Definitely recommend and we will definitely be back.

For some reason there was no note of our reservation whatsoever which put rather a dampener on things but luckily there was a table free. It makes me a bit nervous of booking again if the system isn’t working even out of season! Shame as everything else was fabulous

Second visit and once again a very enjoyable meal. Great service, great ingredients and a lovely setting. The only thing I would point out is, I asked for my steak to be medium rare but it came medium well done. But still tasty.

Lovely meal. Helpful friendly staff. Fillet steak would have been better if was with potato, rather than fries. A lot of dishes with fries....

Was disappointed in the quantity of sandwiches, were very small & even though you changed them the advacardo & chicken was just slice bread with that pulled on top. I came here last year with my daughter & it was lovely.

We have eaten at the restaurant twice before and the food and service have been perfect. I believe the chef and the restaurant manager have changed and I feel things need improvement. Last time we stayed it’ll was for my girlfriends birthday and without saying anything the restaurant manager insured things were made extra special which was lovely. This time unfortunately that wasn’t the case. My steak and chips was average and the tomatoes and mushroom where cold. I have had better in a pub. Our stay at the hotel was fantastic and the manager Sebastian made it extra special, however the food in the restaurant needs to improve to be a patch on what it was when we stayed last. It’s a lovely setting, with a little improvement I’m sure it can be as good by the summer season!

Attractive restaurant. Nice welcome from hostess. Dinner Menu I felt was on the expensive side considering the size of the portions. But the food although a small serving, was well cooked. Not keen on Masterchef type blobs of sauce. Main concern was to see a waiter, at only 7pm, laying up breakfast tables which immediately makes one feel one should be leaving. Breakfast was very good, plenty of choice on the buffet, and my boiled egg was perfect.

The quality of food was low given the price tag it came at was expecting much more for the price paid. The service however was excellent and top class

Rib eye steaks were amazing. Squid starter very poor, Very Small and chewy. Staff very professional and did all required but not terribly friendly. Unlike spa staff who are amazingly friendly!! Lights kept flickering bright and then dim.

As we where not given a wine list with prices, we presumed the wine would be reasonably priced but, when we received our bill the wine was outrageously overpriced, and had put us off ever eating there again. I would go so far as asking for a refund on the wine.
