“As non guests food good but service not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We had dinner to enjoy the view on their nice balcony for dinning. The wine lists even includes a few bottles of sparkling which was a nice treat. The food is sourced from local farms and the menu changes daily. I had a salad starter and king fish main and dessert. The food was good. The service ok, we had to search out the waiter a few times for service, they seemed much more attentive to the guests who were staying at the hotel.

“German Filter-coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

I´ve been to about 35 countries all over the world. But that I can go to restaurant for a typical german filtercoffee with a typical filter machine that ´s absolutely extraordinary wonderful and unique!! The staff was very friendly also to me as a non hotel guest. The waitor saw me and I got my coffee without a word. Also the New Year dinner at the beach was great. The great atmosphere of the sea and and the stars above made it to a great experience. The food was very tasty. And the staff was great. I loved the very good organisation of the event. You felt the idealistic engagement of the owners.
