Restaurant is amazing, very scenic as you can see the stars in the sky. Service and quality of food was good. In fact we wanted to go back but couldnt get another table booked as was busy.
After going to this restaurant no other restaurants came anywhere close to it on this holiday.
Highly recommend it.

We had heard about this restaurant, but reviews said it was cheesy so we in all the years we've been vacationing at the coast, we never tried it. Finally we decided to give it a try and it really was lovely. The service was fantastic, the food was very good and when one of our children told them we were celebrating his birthday, they came out in a group to sing for him and serve his desert. He was thrilled (I know many restaurants do this, but we had not arranged anything).

The Caves as I call it was a fantastic idea for a restaurant. I would rate it as a first class restaurant with a superb choice for anyone - Even those fussy eaters! A must as it was a lovely atmosphere with first class service. We had a 3 course meal with drinks for approx £26 per person. Excellent I'd say.

the setting is just breath taking but unfortunately the food is not. Don't get me wrong it is OK but I just expected the quiescence to match the surroundings

Arrived by free taxi which the restaurant sent to our hotel. Upon arrival we were greeted by a Masai. As the restaurant is set in a cave there are a lot of steps to go down so not suitable for people with disabilities. Once seated at the table the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was very romantic with the lights hidden in the cave walls, the open top to the cave allowed you to see the stars. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We had a lovely time and would highly recommend.
