I emailed directly to the hotel and booked a table at the Ogrille for my husband's birthday, as we don't arrive until the 23rd and his Birthday is on the 25th, they emailed me back to confirm the booking, very helpful.

Yes everything in the spa is payable locally and quite expensive. Although if you book a treatment(we had a massage at €75 each) you may use the spa facility’s for a day.
