This is a truly unique restaurant set in caves that are over 100,000 years old. The whole experience is a pleasant one, the service is very good, the menu comprehensive. The only reason I give it four not five is that we found the menu choice a little dated (things more out of the 80s than today's western world). I'm a vegetarian it was good to have three options.

I wont say much here, because there isn't much to say because the experience is inexplicable. You simply have to go through it, feel it. I leave it there. This is a MUST visit if you are in South coast.

Great food in a truly unique setting. As we were being led from the beach to the entrance we wondered where we were being taken - but it is worth it. The food was very good - not exceptional but good in comparison to other local places

Had the most amazing dining experience in a very long time. The scenery is amazing and by far the most special I have every seen. The restaurant is housed in a natural cave and decorated exotically. From your table you can see the stars. The staff is wonderful just like the whole night. The restaurant also has a romantic atmosphere and is perfect for dates.
