The food is simple and suitable if you expect this. Cocktails weren't great, I'd avoid the fishbowl type coacktail with the rum! View is OK It is the best option in this area

I have been to Amorello twice in the last two weeks. It is very expensive with very poor service. There was only us and one other table at 19h30. None of the tables had been made up or cleaned from earlier in the day. We had to ask for knives, forks, salt pepper etc. We were never offered a drink... More

We had a light lunch at the Amorello last week in the Zulu land area. The greek salad and toasted sandwich were pretty good. We enjoyed the bartender who was pleasant and efficient. The other folks' around the restaurant were unfriendly and almost hostile when we asked to use their internet in a small crisis. They should learn a bit... More

Hi Jeffrey, Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us and your comments are noted and appreciated. With regards to the WIFi access which was requested, we have a large problem where other accommodation venues who do not offer what Amorello does such as the Wifi access, pool, gym etc..., and they then send their guests here...

The food is great! I've ate there many times eating pizzas, pastas and chicken cordon-bleu and I've never been disappointed! The only thing I dislike is the service. Even though the waitresses are always friendly, they don't really seem to know what they're doing but nonetheless we enjoy our time there and will be visiting again soon!

We decided to eat dinner at Amorello on our last night in the area having had a really enjoyable 9-holes of golf the previous day, and having been impressed by the staff team and the owner (very welcoming). With hindsight we should have been warned about the food when we had an inedible calamari snack after the game. The only... More

Hi, I must apologize about the quality of the steak as I was made aware of this issue the next day by my Chef and FOH, as they know how strict I am on quality. I have since taken it up with the butchery where we purchase all our red meat, as we only order Top A Grade meat from... More

Far to expensive for what you get. Very basic meal and tiny portions. The place looked very run down as well with untidy tables and mismatched furniture. The walkway to the toilets displayed very run down areas

HI Linda, I have actually had more people tell me my portions are too big or menu too extensive, but these will always be personal opinions which unfortunately a restaurant will never be able to get 100% correct. Please confirm what you ordered, and what date, so i can follow up on my side as we have strict portion controls... More

Cutlery was not cleaned properly. Food was expensive for what you got and if you were not very hungry, to pay for a buffett is really expensive. It would be really great if you could order a single meal instead of having to dine from the buffett.
