Only ate at the restaurant, but the food was good. The pasta was flavorful and the beef was good. They do not serve alcohol, so one star removed for that. Also, service is slow but courteous. Go early, since they tend to shut the kitchen.

For those who have tasted real good food, there is nothing to rave about here. The prices charged are exorbitant. The ambiance is good though - very peaceful with a lot of fresh air.

Was here for dinner with family after reading a lot of superb reviews. The place is located on a cliff/hill. Ambience is that of an old british bungalow. The food was outstanding. Must must visit.
