Great if you love fish & delicious desserts.

Mainly fish dishes, nicely cooked and well presented. Desserts are delicious. Considering the restaurant is part of a 5 star hotel, it was dissapointing the menu did not change during our stay. Staff were helpful and friendly.

A very good restaurant with imaginative menus - very attentive service and pleasant, helpful staff, as well as stunning views from the various locations around the hotel site that they use.

Food was of excellent quality. Ate here twice, one for lunch and one for dinner on our last night. The seafood soup/stew was amazing as was the house speciality filet of beef with parmesan ice-cream !

A wonderful & beautiful location, including panoramic sea views of the city, island and beaches; we had a delux room. Staff arranged a private tour with a local couple who were excellent (Valdinoto Tours) of the ancient cities and surrounding areas, we even had a local market tour and bought some fantastic items! The restaurant and bar are excellent! Gourmet... More

The main restaurant at Grand Hotel Minareto has a fantastic location overlooking a sandy bay, but the scenery isn't enough to justify this anything special. Although the staff are friendly enough and the the chef is trying to cook you something to look a bit upscale, the food is nothing more than average. The menu is based around Mediterranean Sea...

The food in all the locations at this hotel was absolutely disgusting. From breakfast, lunch by the pool to room service and the very old fashioned Nesos restaurant. No management was ever on site to talk to us either.

Average food, poor staff (my plate was plonked in front of me) and overcharged at the end. Lack of English made solution very hard.

Great breakfasts but it needs to relax in the evening and be less like a 5 star and more like a resort hotel!

We ate there the first night.It was ok,the service was good.The menu is not long and some of items offers are not fresh.The two desserts we had was excellent. The wine is not too expensive. It was ok,so we ate a second night some days later. It was the same experience.... More

We chose fish for our main course it was fresh and expertly cooked .The tuna was cooked to perfection, the best that I have tasted in a long time. The waiters are attentive,pleasant and helpful.
