Fantastic food looking out to sea what more can I say the whole experience was very comfortable. You could select a cold drink from the fridge and then lunch was provided. You pay extra for drinks. Lovely swim in sea before lunch.

Certainly no better view in a Gouves restaurant if you get a good table - stunning. The island sits Sea side of the beach road on a small peninsular.

Great restaurant near the hotel. Food was excellent and staff are very accommodating.

I'm sure this doesn't happen often. We'll definitely go back... More
