Adjacent to the entrance to the Greek theatre once you are inside it is another world. The terrace overlooking the sea is large and comfortable. The food was extremely good and well worth a visit.

A extreme disappointment for a Belmond establishment. For a 5* hotel to not even have a correct menu was clearly a bad start. The lack of adequate heating outside and staff who seem more important than the guests is just embarassing. As for the "chocolate...More
