Our second to Ali Barbours visit did not disappoint.
Excellent food in the beautiful restaurant with very good service.
We had the fish of the day which was delicious and a 2 course meal with pre dinner drinks and wine was not unreasonable, considering everything at about £35 per head.
Would certainly recommend and revisit if opportunity arises

Having eaten twice at Nomads (a bit average) and Kenaways (poor) this was by far the best. Amazing place to eat, set in a cave with lovely lighting. Food very good in a town with generally less than great food. I had beef carpacio and steak Madagascar. Wife had prawns and chicken breasts. All very good (I'm sure many would rate as excellent on trip advisor but I reserve that for truly excellent food) with wine, cocktails and desert it came to about 90 pounds which is obviously very expensive but worth the treat. Stunning

Excellent menu...nice décor/atmosphere.....Pick a fine warm evening to appreciate the 'open' top cave to view the moon and stars whilst dining. RECOMMENDED.

Great restaurant set in a cave below ground. The service and food was great and has a spectacular setting. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The starter of smoked Sailfish was great! We went our of high season and it was still very busy - so probably best to book ahead.
