The scallops were brilliant and the hangar steak we had was cooked well. The prawns from the paella were too overdone. The best thing about the restaurant is the magical view of the bay, it is absolutely splendid.

For the price you pay to stay here, the way they market themselves as a luxury experience, and the prices they charge for dinner, I had very high expectations of this place. Dinner was almost a complete disaster. I ordered the squid ink tortellini which,...More
