First the positive: The view is beautiful. The restaurant was not very busy but the service was awful. Felt like we were being ignored. No one came to refill our bread or water glasses (5.50 euros for the bottle of still water!). My wife had one of the specials, which was OK. I had the duck, which was salty and... More

We went here 3 nights ago and were very impressed with the views, it truely is breathtaking. However, it is a restaurant stuck in the 1970s and happy to serve their ageing clientele over the possibility of drawing in a younger 30 something crowd. The starter was a sort of crab timbale with crostini but it was very plain and... More

There are plenty of well trained staff who are both charming and anxious to please. On top of this the location is fabulous with a large cliff-top terrace and conservatory overlooking the... More

Went here as it was very near my hotel, the cliff bay. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal and the portion size was just perfect as I was full without being bloated. The staff were also very good without pestering you too much.
