“Good atmosphere and food”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

The restaurant is in the hotel at Sanctuary Cove. The staff were very attentive. The food and service was very good. Prices were reasonable and the wine selection was good.

“Outstanding quality food but particularly pricey”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

We had a lovely dinner for 2 on a relatively quiet night. Having read a number of previous reviews we were a little apprehensive but pleasantly surprised. There is no doubt that the quality & presentation of lamb loins we thoroughly enjoyed was fantastic! As it was quiet (we ate about 6:30pm on a public holiday) we were also impressed at how quickly the meals came. The service from all the staff (except 1 guy who wasn't very friendly) was warm & attentive.
I can understand from other reviews if you came at a very busy time that it would be very noisy & a little hard to hear & bad timing could easily result in a long wait for food.
While our entire experience was delightful, being a public holiday added an extra 15% to an already particularly over priced menu for what you got - very small portions.
Having said that - we would return again but not on a public holiday & only when it was quiet.

“good fine dining”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Nice fine dining restaurant but casual. Open kitchen area with pizza oven. Good service. In the actual hotel complex downstairs. Mid to upper range prices on food
