We were going to title this review 'don't bother' and leave it at that, but an explanation should be given.
The restaurant is in a fantastic location. Unfortunately the food we had was inedible. We had the set menu, a watery, salty corn broth. Then rice and some green spinach (stone cold) came to the table, followed by a selection of 'fish'. The calamari was rubbery, overlooked and couldn't be chewed, the fish was dry and burnt and full of bones. A previous reviewer had mentioned the dim lighting, so bad we couldn't see tot are the bones out of the fish. The prawns were cooked so much there was no meat and the oysters were the best of the pick, but 2 isn't going to fill you up. All the food was cold and the wandering, crying cats under the table were very off putting.
This restaurant could be so much better, the location and view are outstanding, unfortunately the food doesn't even come close to what is acceptable for the money. We bought a package through our villa, including the fire dance and a driver, so cannot say exactly how much the food cost. Whatever it was, was too much
