“Good quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The set menu which is three courses & a drink is good value for money. Large portions, well presented and served. Not a massive choice on the set menu, particularly the deserts, but there is always the a la carte which is extensive. The views overlooking the coastline are really special, the hotel being in an elevated position...ensure you get a window seat though. We took our family who were visiting for a lunch time meal and everyone enjoyed themselves. Highly recommended for service, food and atmosphere. Will definitely return.

“Very good for a special occassion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Lovely restaurant but fairly expensive so not for every night! Interesting menu which even our 10 year old found suitable (along with the 13 and two 16 year olds) so worth a visit as a 'treat'. Fantastic view over the bay and beautifully prepared food. Perfect for special nights out and equally suited to couples and families. You may need to visit after the frustration of the very ordinary beach front restaurants gets to you - with a few notable exceptions. We enjoyed it but it worked out about €30 per head.

“Great view and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is my personal favourite for Campello. The daily changed 4-course menu is of excellent quality and at an excellent price (16 euro). The view over the harbour is beautiful and romantic and there is a large terrace. Service is very friendly and good. Top!
