We didn't expect the space to live up to the pictures but this restaurant is absolutely breathtaking. The food was amazing, obviously more expensive than anything else in the area but well worth it and a great value. The presentations were spectacular. The staff were overall very accommodating for such a touristy place, some were friendlier than others.

A good restaurant, somewhat expensive. The scenery very nice. The scenery reminds me that of Remetzo Cafe in Poros/Cefalonia/Greece though I cannot find now any suitable drone picture to attach. It' s a plain cafe from outside, truly built within the rock inside, with a magical direct sea view!!!

Interesting place to see, but more special the town, special little town which deserve a visit. Food in the restaurant from 0 to 10 = 5 Service 0 to 10 = 7 The female give some attention, the men = zero Do not deserve to eat (VERY expensive for the food, they just count on the special surrounding place.

You descend down the stairs to this candlelit cavern to begin your evening. It is a magical place! We all enjoyed our meals of a selection of breads, steak and fish entrees, salads, dessert & wine. The food quality was good but the cave dining room was a memory maker!

Having read the recent reviews only a couple of hours before attending, we were a little anxious to say the least about our reservation that we made way back in January that was intended to finish off our two week honeymoon in Italy. We arrived at 7:20 on Saturday with the restaurant opening at half past. About 50 people were...

You are coming here for interior, sea, and view. Don't come for a food, gonna be dissatisfied and disappointed. Premise shall invest in Chef immediately... Quality of starters is good, but what comes after - not worth it at all, unfortunately. Paid almost 250 euros for couple, but certainly paid for the view, not a food.
