“Will never forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Probably one of the most wonderful places where you can have great food and atmosphere. If you get the opportunity to visit the area then please make time try the cave - and have the crab claws (which are probably the best I have ever eaten).

“amazing atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

It's a must visit when on the South Coast. Impeccable service, extensive wine list . Unfortunately the food was too salty but well presented. The atmosphere is worth experiencing.

“A coast favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

A wonderful setting at night as long as it's a clear night and the roof is open. The food is great too proving some places don't just rely on settings. Will be back again without a doubt.

“a cave experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

i have never been to a cave well lit and decorated as the forty thieves .
it was quite a good evening with my clients from Diana sea resort we had fun as we drank at the bar we had cool music and well entertained
we were picked from the resort to the caves
when you stay in the Diana beach you cant feel whole till you visit the caves
apart from the good ambiance the services are friendly and the food at the restaurant is so delicious
you cant wait to be there yourselves when you get to Diana beach give it a trial and surely you will enjoy
its always good to ask me what to do in and around south coast
