One of the best meals ever

After a ride on a golf cart from the hotel reception to the restaurant, upon arriving at the restaurant the hostess informed us that there had been a mix-up with our reservation and that we did not in fact have a table.

When we reserved we were told we had a table on the much-coveted terrace. We called on the way to ensure that they still had our table. Upon arrival we were seated at an indoor table large enough for six people. Only upon inquiry as to the status of our highly sought-after, worth-an-hour-drive terrace table were we told that a...

Now this is a restaurant which truly deserves Two Michelin Stars if not more. (having dined two days earlier at another in the area) The moment you enter you are made to feel so very special. The ambience is classical, the view from the terrace is paradise. It is fine dining at its best, each course was an adventure of... More

We were sent here as a surprise from our children for our silver wedding anniversary. It was amazing. From the minute we arrived we were treated to champagne cocktails, a golf buggy took us to the ocean restaurant, and we were seated on the balcony overlooking the amazing Atlantic. Our food was served with such imagination, beautifully presented, and the... More

So finally after escalating to senior management somebody called us back to confirm our reservation. Yes we can have a table on the terrace (months earlier when we first booked that would have been good to know) and as it was a fixed menu what don't we eat, no pork please. Buggy to the restaurant, many apologies for the confusion... More

We chose the 5 course Culinary Moments with wine flight and did not regret a single choice of this total dining experience. The food, where to begin? Intensity of flavours, ingredient combinations, presentation it was exquisite and truly enhanced by the sommeliers selection of wines. From our arrival at reception to our evening farewells every member of staff displayed truly... More

Arriving the concierge treated us as if we were the only people there, by our last name. We had a drink in the courtyard bar to start were Portuguese Fado, and barbecue sardines were served to a private party (a good Portuguese touch). A golf buggy was waiting to take us to the restaurant. I picked a different table than... More

We got a reply promptly and was asked about allergies etc. When we arrived we jumped on a golf buggy which took us to the restaurant. We had asked for a table on the balcony, which we got.

I don't understand why Ocean still didn' receive a third Michelin-star. It was our third visit to Ocean. In no other restaurant you will find this spectacular view on the ocean while enjoying Hans Neuner's dishes. "This is yous space", the staff said. They are right! When you are already in the mood by the fantastic atmosphere en service at... More
