We were a group of 7 on holiday in July 2013.We were collected by a lovely new mini bus from the hotel. The restaurant was lovely open air with a thatched roof. extremely good quality crockery, glassware and table linen.
On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and were served canapés, the small meat pastries were amazing. We were then offered a glass of the local booze, Groc; I tried the honey flavour and although it blew your socks off it was delicious .Within our group some chose lobster, goat and chicken. The lobster was out of this world, lobster soup and then grilled lobster with salad and rice , some of the best lobster I have had. The goat melted in the mouth it was so delicious and plenty of it too. Deserts were beautiful we had a trio of homemade biscuit ice cream, fruit salad and coconut panna cotta.
The local entertainment was great , the band seemed to expand , every time we looked up another person had come to join in and play guitar, ukulele or sing. It was a very laid back evening with wonderful service, we joined in with dancing, and had great fun . It was such a pleasant change form the all inclusive resort we were staying at. I think the cost per person for the whole evening was about £50 per head, it was well worth it and I cant recommend strongly enough, give it a try you will have a great time.

40 euro per person for the lobster menu and shuttle service to and from your hotel. Who can say no to that.

Cristina speaks loads of languages and is super friendly making sure everyone is happy.

Not to be missed when you visit the island!

Nice entertainment, not so expensive, the owner is very friendly and can speak many langauges. The musicians (live music) are great and the food is very typical and good. A nice way to see the island by night, because they will pick you up at the hotel and you have to make a trip in a van for about 1 hour South.
