The food was really disappointing and expensive, not good value for money at all. Evening saved by the lovely staff, but still could not recommend it

We were looking for something different than traditional island food, and we were NOT disappointed! The owner was very attentive and offered many suggestions for dinner options. All food is prepared fresh daily. I had the gnocchi, my husband had the rigatoni and our friends...More
