The gardens as you walk through to the restaurant are magical and the restaurant is situated on the beach front. The food was wonderfully presented, fresh and tasty.

Terrible experience. They changed the reservation 20min before the booked time, while we were in the taxi on the way to the restaurant. Not apologetic not proposing any option but now it'll be 1h30min later. Just unacceptable... Very very poor experience.More
