Most magical setting, but let down by the staff. No-one to greet us, so stood and waited to be acknowledged . Finally got seated, but no explanation as to how the buffet/hot menu worked. Tried to make toast, but had a maintenance man tell me to wait because there was an issue with the power/toaster??? We had booked for dinner... More

Sad to say the breakfast has not lived up to past experience of this restaurant/hotel. It has a lovely aspect, facing the sea but staff were unfriendly and the meal was expensive and the menu had been changed. No wifi for none residents which is a pity as most of the other cafes have this on offer. Will not recommend... More

Delicious fresh food available for brunch. The seating area on the decking and at the front is very pretty, opposite the beach. Setting is great. Staff friendly and food delicious. Would return.

The breakfast at this restaurant is delicious and varied. The staff are very helpful and they do not rush you out early to get your table. You can relax and watch the people walking along the beach. Lunchtime is delicious and again they do not rush you out. Great food and great staff

This place should be well up the list. But it isn't and won't be based on the missing ingredient of service. Dined there last night and the food was good though not flash. Wine list is short. And the table service could do with improvement. The staff are too young and too lacking in style and presence. Inane banalities are... More

I love this place, the waiters are friendly, the food is excellent. I had the kangaroo as my entree and the seafood taster as my main. It was beautifully cooked & presented. Reasonably priced too, and with our Accor Advantage Plus card we got 50% off the food bill, which made it exceptional value.
