Visited to celebrate my Mother's birthday and wasn't disappointed. Lovely surroundings and the food is 5 star - definitely a level above anything else we've tried in Sanctuary Cove and on par with some of the best restaurants we've been to. Fresh, delicious, beautifully presented. My only criticism was slightly aloof service after we had a legitimate issue with one... More

Visited this restaurant last Friday night for a birthday dinner with family. We had booked a table outside and the setting and atmosphere is very lovely. Service was a little strange. We were 15 minutes early and were asked to wait at the bar, which was fine, however there was no drink service or obvious area were I could go... More

We found that all of the Sanctuary Cove Restaurants were really well priced. Not what we had expected. Guess that's why we ate out so much! Ioesco was wonderful. Service is great and the menu is extensive. Highly recommended for lunch or dinner.

This was a pre wedding dinner with the friends of the bride and groom and it was exceptional food with great staff. The staff are people who know how to look after a large group and it is well worth going here. The beef cheeks are the meal to try.

Amazing menu, great food. Italian and authentic, a massive variety. Only disappointment is everything apart from what u ordered, like say veal, is an extra, so if there isn't a large table, u have to order and waste sides which a reasonable in size. I wanted Veggies which I would need to order 3 sides and my friend wanted salad... More
