Food left something to be desired for the price. Scallops were very small. Succulents with the fish dish were overpowering with saltiness. The oyster mousse is not good. Pork belly and truffle fries were good.

We had a fabulous lunch with friends. Despite the poor weather the atmosphere was great and our server was friendly and chatty without being overbearing or too familiar. Her knowledge of the food and suggested pairings was awesome. Our choices of food were perfect each of us tasting something different and the flavours and food combinations had been thoughtfully constructed. Although our go to previously has been Alibi for beer and snacks I would highly recommend the restaurant for value for money, delicious food, excellent wine and ambience.

Service could have been sharper. Had to ask three times for a glass of wine. But I do love dining at Tantalus. The food is excellent. Lovely spot.

We had an amazing experience at Tantalus this weekend. Our waitress (think she was Finland) was charming and attentive and Josh was really welcoming. We were really looked after.

Some of my favourite views on the island. The estate was beautiful, including decor. The food was incredible with each plate having an excellent combination of flavours. The wine was our favourite from the region. The service was professional, fun, and engaging. Every one of the staff looked after us, but Bianca took it to the next level.
