“How can luxury be so bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

This is supposed to be the best and finest place in Kendwa. Yes it is the nicest but allways empty. The meny is boring and fit only a few. In low season you will sometimes get yesterdays dry food. Stay away, it is not worth it.. PS. the owners are terrible.

“Excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The choice of food was impressive and very well prepared and presented by an exceptional staff.

The drinks were superb and all this in a great setting on a pier with views all around.

Value for money and worth a visit.
