Enhanced by the fantastic views of the beach, and the superb, attentive staff, this is a treat. The food is a high class experience, and the wine list leaves one spoilt for choice. Highly recommended.

Great food, staters were a little small but quality was great. Sat outside and were brought rugs as it got colder later on.

Thought we would eat in as we were staying in the hotel. We had our dog with us and they dog sat so we could enjoy our meal without worrying about him. Big bonus points :) the food was of a high standard but maybe a big to fancy for our pallet. If you are looking for something special for... More

Being able to dine with your dog is a big plus, I know it's unfamiliar territory for them, being all together feels much more relaxing. Should you join us again, we can always create a simpler menu enabling you to fully enjoy your dining experience, just let our reservation team know upon re-booking. We also have an Anytime Anywhere menu... More

The restaurant has a great outlook out over the beach. The food was very good, despite there being few items on the menu. Unfortunately this is an 'eco' hotel, so the wines are not allowed any airmiles, so the choice is limited.

Thank toandfromtheairport

We do only source our wines from as far as Europe, but feel we have a large selection that has been carefully chosen, many of these can also be ordered by the glass. We prefer to have a slightly smaller menu to ensure we deliver beautifully presented, delicious food, I am really pleased to read you enjoyed your evening with... More

We are really proud of our vegetarian options on both our lunch & dinner menu, with us being a sustainable hotel, it fits very well with our ethos.

Staying at the sister hotel ,this was a must for our last night. A rather cavernous dining room but it was certainly spacious. Staff were very friendly and service was good. Food excellent and the views were stunning.
