“Sunset and a good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

A perfect location for combining a view of the sunset with a nice dinner. Make sure to prebook a front row table (6:30 pm is a good time). Service was good, the lamb excellent, and the wine a good match for the reds of the setting sun. Not cheap, but not overpriced either. You find it between the windmill and the castle ruins; an ocre colored building.

“nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

I've been here at the begging of season 2013, so it wasn't so crowded for the sunset, as the restaurant is situated next to the ruins from were everybody come to watch the sunset. Amazing chocolate cake & good wine, a little bit pricey, but I guess you have to pay for the view too :).

“Good food, great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We lucked out and snagged a table along the overlook after booking a reservation through our hotel. If we had the original table just back one row of tables the review would not have changed much. The view is really best away from the restaurant looking back. Luckily you're a short walk to the main overlook and can order, walk and take some photos and come back before the food has come out. Nice menu with a good selection of drinks, mains and desserts. The staff were very attentive and generally the crowds weren't too bad getting there. It's tucked away inside the rest of the area with narrow off camber pathways so be prepared to go exploring to find it. Once there it's worth the trip and makes you want to stay and relax longer. Worth a trip and make sure you arrive for sunset and are prepared for everyone else to be snapping photos as the sun goes down.
