“Great atmosphere, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Very rustic design next to the sea with comfortable setting. The fresh wood fired oven pizza are extremely delicious cooked in front of you and melt in your mouth. Very romantic setting but also great for going as a group. There are also rooms to stay in and I can see they are building more rooms. Swimming in the sea or pool also available.

“The best restaurant on the outskirts : SUPERB”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The food is excellent and some homemade shoots we took are to die for. The pricing is reasonable and most of all, the food here is real italian. They have the most exceptional venue, secluded and romantic. They host beautiful parties every once a month. During the weekends, the pool is a nice place to chill and unwind. I love the new sushi - restaurant that is just in the same area in medi, and so hope to try this too. Am very pleased and happy with everything about this place, food, staff, drinks variety, ambiance, location, activities that make this place come alive etc.
Congrats and good work.

“Stunning setting - great pizza -good service BUT other food not always up to standard.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is exclusively a restaurant review, as we have never stayed at the hotel. The setting for the dining area is absolutely stunning. - raised off the beach and on the high-water mark there is always a cooling breeze. Glass partitions separate one from the locals that enjoy the beach - but don't impede the incredible views in any way. - We have eaten here many, many times and see a lot of regulars here, so obviously a place people appreciate. The pizza is delicious and well worth a visit. The service is also great and a lovely lady called "Matilda really does go the extra mile and we tend to ask for her by name now to serve our table when we book. -The food other than pizza is however not always up to standard. The quality of food from the hotel kitchens is highly erratic, with some meals delicious and the occasional REALLY AWFUL dish making it to the table. - This is the SAME meal ordered on different days that can vary hugely in quality and taste. - I would recommend you go if you want a lovely time in a gorgeous setting and aren't too fussy about food or are prepared to send stuff back if it is not as good as expected.

“the best place to take people from out of town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

A gorgeous view, pretty good food for Dar, GREAT coffee, really nice desserts, and nice wait staff. Plus, in many parts, the floor is beach sand, so the kids can play in the sand while you relax and enjoy your lunch and a coffee.
