First class, one star Michelin. Tasting menue and the pairing wine menue are not expensive, they just cost a lot of money. But you really get value for your bucks. Been here a couple of times, staff are really helpful and full of knowledge, the views and environment are stunning. Every visit here cause a hole in the budget but...

This is the complete antidote to the large hotel chains that, while comfortable, are the same all over the world. Perched on a cliff with a spectacular beach alongside it, we really enjoyed the intimate atmosphere - it only has 27 bedrooms - and the excellent service. Its a quiet setting and there's not much to do if the weather...
