Desert needs an upgrade.
Nightmare trying to book, Took my wife and I about one hour on 3 different occasions, until we finaly Cracked the code. Wouldn't bother again.
Great food and service in a special location. Well done Pinnacles team from kitchen to front of house.
A beautiful meal with a magical view. A great idea for a New Year’s Eve dinner
Disappointing experience for the money. Food very average
The staff service was amazing, everyone was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this experience to everyone. :)
We had a fantastic buffet lunch at The Pinnacles. A member of our party has celiac and the staff were wonderful catering to her needs. The choice of food was superb and excellent quality. I cannot sing my praises loud enough. All set in a stunning relaxed atmosphere with lovely views of the mountain. We will be back.
Hi team - would like to thank you for an awesome day. Everything ran like clockwork and everyone made it a Christmas day to remember. Thank you team
The food was excellent. The shrimp cocktail, there was no second option and I don't eat seafood so found that a little disappointing. Only other thing it would have been lovely to see Christmas pud or mince pies for desert. I feel it didn't have enough Christmas feel with music and decorations but it was still very lovely and would I do it again, yes. Mull wine was a favourite of my husband's so a lovely touch so thank you 🙂🙂
Great place and atmosphere, enjoyed the meal and service with a smile. Thanks
The hot food was on the cool side and we were there at 11.30 am . I pointed out to Ricardo that the carrots that I had were somewhat under cooked. Could you please thank Ricardo and Toby for looking after us so well as it added to the overall atmosphere which we enjoyed very much.
Definately lovely place beautifull atmosphere not to hot and to cold alot of space to move around and not crammed up. The food theres not a lot to select from but what is there is enough and all together is delicious the service we had was awesome didnt have to wait for anyone to come the waiters were friendly full of conversation.. all in all a really nice place to eat.. and will definately be coming back maybe for dinner this time 😊
