Our chef uses the freshest ingredients to produce mouth watering dishes which are beautifully presented.Lunch (12.00-2.00) and dinner (6.30 to 9.00)are served in both the restaurant and Bistro. Snacks are also available in the Bistro.Weather permiting you may prefer to dine in one of the five terraces.Our upper terrace is particularly popular as you are surrounded by exotic plants, grasses, palms and flowers, it has hand carved Indian sandstone paving and private alcolves made from railway sleepers. Then there is the peace and quiet and fabulous sea view. We are able to cater for any number of diners as well as cater for all sorts of functions including weddings, birthdays etc.
