Beautiful location and views, but the food was rather uninspired. The service was also not up to Michelin standards. Overall an OK meal, but would not go back. My recommendation would be to forget Cayola and dine at le fatra.

For the 10 years we have been coming to Sables, we promised ourselves that we would go here and yesterday we finally did! It was great fun and pretty much as good as we thought although the head waiter was a bit humourless- he of...More

This restaurant is pure class, starting with the view just beautiful and with an interior to match. We had the taster menu with wines at €115 and it was excellent. The chef here is very talented and his presentation is stunning. We are glad we...More

Had a lovely meal here in May, was a bit worried about the potential language barrier but it worked out ok. Food was amazing and the view was incredible.
