Tremendous food, atmosphere and staff. My wife and I could not ask for more. Must try the shrimp ravioli and certainly the chicken. Both exquisite. The staff could not have been more attentive and informative. They even fed the fish for us.

Its $285bds per head for a 2 course meal without drinks. We came back this morning and ate at the cliff on Friday night, the bill was $800bds or $400us for 2 of us. The view is sensational but the food was sadly average.
