    Outdoor area was lovely, with a nice view. Cocktail was the poorest I have had in years, as I don't go out often I'd been looking forward to treating myself. Fish was undercooked, friend's food was cold. On the plus side, the staff were lovely. Overall, not worth the money when so many great places out there to eat.

    If not at a window seat, experience is diminished. If 3 to a seat within booths comfort is seriously diminished and would be a factor when choosing a restaurant (same with press-ups other restaurants).

    I love this place but it’s now the third time that it’s very noisy and we have some issues with the service. Tonight we got starters on time but we had to wait almost one hour for 2 pizzas and my wife got a pizza without the change she asked for.

    Overall we had a lovely night. The only disappointment was that we were sat next to a designated smoking area. Although we were on the terrace it was covered in. I think smokers should be asked to us the lift to front of the hotel to smoke when people are clearly dining in this area. However, the food was delicious. Our server Rodrigo was so lovely. He looked after us so well and made our meal even more enjoyable. We will definitely return
