The food is only half of what makes this restaurant incredible, that being said, the food really was delicious! The restaurant sits on the very top of a ridge, overlooking the ocean, with a 360 degree view right from your table. Highly recommended!

It should be 30 minutes, the road is quite rough once you leave the highway, 4-wheel drive is suggested. Be sure and get there well before sunset to enjoy the views.

They can definitely make a fabulous vegetarian meal. I would just make a reservation in case they are on a modified schedule given its the low season. I highly recommend this restaurant!
