It was a strange experience, that's for sure. The food is not bad, but not excelent, so it's expensive for what you get. If you go by night don't forget to bring a flashlight or you won't make it. Now it comes the BIG PROBLEM:...More

We visited here for pizza when on Isla del sol. The setting is fab, all lit by candlelight, with games and cards to play. Pizza was tasty with lots of organic vegetables. Take a torch for the walk back through the woods.

This magic place lit by candle light offers amazing food and incredible view over the south of the island with a beautiful sunset. Offering table games to entertain yourself while waiting for a delicious trout. Bring snacks and torch light to illuminate your way back.

Delicious food that is worth the wait while you enjoy an incredible sunset over a glass of wine. The freshest and most “cuisined” you’ll get on the island!

The view is amazing and since we had to wait quite some time for our food we enjoyed the beautiful sunset in the meanwhile. The food is very good and the atmosphere is unique, i.e very few tables with candles and some board games to...More
