Staff were all great, but our waitress in particular was excellent - if I wasn't on a strict budget before I start my new job, I would have definitely given a tip! The lack of diners had me worried about the standard of the food etc - that concern was quickly alleviated by both food and service. This was one of those rare instances where the old adage of "eating where the locals eat" when away from home was off the mark!

Great restaurant! Great food. Went for a quiet dinner, it was very quiet... To quiet. Surprisingly quiet considering the quality of the restaurant. Some serious marketing issues, the place should be full daily? It’s beautiful place.

Not a fan of the scrambled eggs (been twice) BUT you can order poached eggs and they are great! Hash browns were not always available and that might be because they are SO good! Love the berry fruit and jams. Service has been fabulous both times we have been. Will definitely be back. Great food, great service.

Staff very polite and helpful. Nice atmosphere. Food generally excellent with selection. New Year’s Eve dinner overall very good although beef dish steak not cooked that well. Overall we always enjoy staying at your hotel and over the years have never had a bad experience.

Beautiful food!!! Bar service poorl, very unhappy bar man with zero personality behind the bar. Once in the restaurant drinks took forever to get to our table, odd as no one in the bar or restaurant. Service in the restaurant was ok considering the young lady was learning, and being trained by a non restaurant person. We would not rush back :-(

Staff amazing. Food disappointing. Ceviche uninspiring and somewhat bland. Steak had quite a lot of fat on it. Food very ordinary and overpriced. Staff in the dining room and the bar made the evening enjoyable

Beautiful location and service, but the price we paid for the amount we got made me laugh. My feedback is to give value for the money.

When booking online I could only book for 4 which was a pain but I believed that to be due them being busy... this was not a case. We were the only ones in the very large restaurant for about 2 hours until 2 others turned up. Apart from that the food was very good and David was a lovely waiter.
