Food was nice, nothing spectacular but still... Nice. The views and surroundings are lovely and what makes the experience above average. The service was very good. I would recommend dining here one night if staying in the hotel although it is pretty expensive if you eat here a few times during your stay. We had two courses, a bottle of... More

The restuarant is on 9th floor of huge hotel complex, views are OK but some distance from sea. Food was good not exceptional, I would expect a lot more in the UK for this standard of restuarant, staff friendly but not well trained. Not particularly expensive, would not recommend to a friend!

We stayed at the hotel below and ate here one evening. The restaurant creates a very nice ambience for somewhere to have a nice meal. The food was good, the kids meals were a bit too rich in flavour for children. However I had the steak and it was nicely cook. Not the best place I ate this holiday but... More

We started with Foie Gras and Pimiento del Piquillo stuffed with salt cod and served with a mushroom sauce. Both delicious, but the foie gras slightly marred by being served with supermarket melba toasts. The mains were both superb. The Segovia Lamb was sublime and the Duck with tangerine sauce was spectacular. Dessert of Goxua was delicious and served with... More

I came here without any high expectations, as a friend recommended me this place I thought it would be nice to come with friends... I was surprised with atmosphere generally, views are stunning, service very professional.

We had a great time. The food is gorgeous, the place is amazing with stunning views and the chill out area superb for a relaxing after-dinner drink (or more!). Service was great with waiters and waitresses going out of their way to make you feel properly looked after. Highly recommendable.

What my husband and I wanted was a quality Spanish meal, with fresh local ingredients and a romantic chilled out setting, and that is exactly what we got! It was the experience overall that charmed us most, the beautiful terraza, the peace and quiet, the carefully prepared food and the most friendly helpful service we have received in some time....
