We came twice as were staying half board at nearby hotel. World beating view. The first time we ordered off the menu and the second time had the fixed menu. Both were excellent. It gets busy with groups but if only a small number of...you, you get out on the edge with the best view. Probably best to book. Very reasonable cocktails and the food was good value and tasty. Brilliant service, a real highlight. Only opens at lunchtime I suggest arrive before 2.More

Wonderful view, horrible service! We came one hour before closing, no kitchen is open even though they were still serving people, zero customer service! Waiters and hosts looked tired over worked and not even a tiny smile! It felt like we have to take care...of them !! The view is breathtaking though, panoramic amazing view! What a waste!!More

The view was excellent. But that's it. The food was not particularly good and it was cold(beef, rice etc) when they get it to table. The waitresses are not nice and not friendly. Very small talk when we ask the questions about the food. But...the waiters are really nice. When she get the bill to the table, she said 'service is not included' like we are cheap or so. Briefly, I enjoyed the view for sure but I have eaten way more delicious food in other restaurants.More

A family party of nine, we visited this spectacular restaurant whilst staying at Bel Ombre. The food took some time to arrive as all cooked to order, but was worth the wait. We took the advice of the waiter to order two of the taster...menues, plus three main dishes and a couple of salads, which we shared. Our three children ate from the kids menu. The food was all delicious and well presented, and the setting on a sunny day is just the best ever. We will keep our memories of this special lunch forever.More

It was a terrible experience. Everything went wrong from the start. The first time we booked a table, and no one said that the road to the restaurant was closed, we had to return. The second time we wanted to book a table no one...picked up the phone. We arrived, and they told us that they would not let us in without vaccination, no one had asked us in other restaurants before. As a result, we were refused, the staff is very unfriendly. do not recommend!More

Views are lovely but the food is basic almost like they’ve pre made the meals akin to school cafeteria. No real choice although I wish I’d had the kids meals which was grilled chicken with chips and salad. You don’t get to choose and only...our youngest was considered young enough for the kids meal. The 12yr and 14yr were too old! The deserts were not so great in my opinion again no choice. We were all served a cold tapioca pudding with a layer of fruit purée and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Texture and taste weren’t very nice but I’m sure some people would like it.More

Visited as part of a tour so probably not seeing it at its best. Or most expensive. Food was OK but no real choice. Not really enough service staff to cover the venue. The location and view is out of this world and if you...have one of the tables with a better view everything else doesn't matter. Good tables are about 40% by our reckoning.. It's good but perhaps our expectation s were a little high - I couldn't give it 5 stars.More

First of all, the sight of the turquoise sea with the lofty mountains and greenery is out of this world. This in itself puts you in a different state of mind and gets you to really relax. It is transcendently impressive. To top it up,...we had a big male macaque visiting the restaurant! Now, with the service, I have to admit that the food is a bit pricey. In addition, we had to wait a long time for the food to arrive. It seems the staff tend to focus on delivering to white tourists first. We ordered a chocolate moelleux and we had to wait nearly 30 minutes for it to arrive. The waiters themselves were nice and kind though. We also had venison curry. However you would think curry would be a little spicy. But the curry had no bite to it. All in all, the food was not that exceptional for the price you pay.More
