Amazing view, delicious food however, rather pricey.

Stopped by Dr Frogs on our way back to our hotel after a long drive around the island. It was about 4pm and the view from our seats was breathtaking. There was only one other couple there so it wasn't busy. We ordered a pizza and a pasta and some drinks. Wasn't as quick as we'd expect but not... read more

Dr Frogs purports to be Italian fine dining but falls well short of the mark. It uses frozen ingredients and although the food isn't bad it's expensive, rather bland and generally run of the mill. Not what you expect from the adverts. Wine is pricey although the Frogs legs were a high point. Value for money 4/10. Food 5/10.

Ate here for the first time for Mother's Day Lunch celebrations. Meal was fantastic, its a little more expensive but not unrealistic prices for the service and meals. I had scallops and asparagus, then to die for panna cotta. Will definitely go back again. Lovely view, get a table close to the water

We went here because of trip advisor recommendations and weren't disappointed. It's overlooking the sea so we dishes we had gone here when it was light.

Try to make early reservations or go for an early drink to get the spectacular views from the restaurant. After dark, it is still nice, but you are missing out on the best part of Dr. Frog's. I have gone many times over the last 8 years and am rarely disappointed! Loved their rack of lamb special on my visit... More

After circling the island on a scooter we had built up a bit of an appetite and decided to stop here, because it looked nice. Boy was I glad we did.

Let's face it. We love a nice view. Throw in some good service and a surprisingly good singer/guitar player who did seriously great covers with originality and sensitivity, and it became too easy to forget that the price for a two-course meal and a bottle of wine was far too high for what was delivered. Don't get me wrong: the... More
