I can only describe this restaurant as stunning, in a great setting. The staff are very helpful and informative and will take you on a tour for free, there are glass floors above the old roman remains and you can stand on the glass looking down into an 11 metre well. We only had time for a bottle of wine... More

Drinks and menus arrived quickly, the menu was interesting with some classic dishes but with a twist! Both meals - stroganoff and Iberian Secret (Pork) were amazing, well presented and excellent quality. The meal... More

The meal including two large shared starters, three excellent maincourses and the wine, water and bread came to €102,60.
