“View better than the food!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

The restaurant is situated in beautiful gardens overlooking the pool. Unfortunately my med rare steak was more well done with an overlooked egg but good chips as accompaniments. The service was good however overall I wasn't overly impressed.

“Selection limited”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

I sat watching the toilets and hearing the splash of pool water. The only food I could eat was chips and my husband ordered a 'pink' cheesecake with his coffee.

“Lovely Setting”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

The food was really nice but over-priced. Make sure you have Pulas to pay, as they totally rip you off with the exchange rate!! Shocking!
