It is true that the location is special because the restaurant is situated in a cave. Anyway about the served food we were not amazed at all. The dishes were rather basic than outstanding. The children menu really basic. What makes me believe that the...More

Very nice restaurant allowing to have a meal in a unique and sensational atmosphere... The kitchen is fine aswell! Just mind to make a reservation before, as the place might be full. Definitely a must do if you're in the region...

Great location: apero on the terrasse overhanging a wild roaring river fall followed by dinner in the beautiful cave. Unfortunately, the magic ends there. The cave smells like... a humid cave. The guy on the piano was playing easy-listening versions of the music from Disney's...More

One feels like in a movie with the lights and the water in the grotte. James Bond at the neighbouring table would be no surprise at all. Service fine, food ok No mobile phone reception in the grotte, but on the terrace.

Entering the restaurant is really charming.... But when comes the time of order, you look everywhere to see a smile on the waiters' face... The very bad service is not balanced by the quality of the food. Nice plates are not enough to compensate a...More
