We went to The Cliff on our 30th wedding anniversary and it lived up to the recommendations. Beautiful setting and delicious dishes. I requested my steak medium-rare and it came medium. The way the restaurant staff handled my request for another one was impeccable - faultless. Mentioning this issue is not as a complaint but as praise. Anyone can make... More

We came here on a child free night as were told it was the "place to go" the setting is lovely, make sure you request a table on the boardwalk for the best location. I could not faulty the service, the waiting staff were brilliant, very attentive but not in an annoying way, just the right level of attentiveness. Was... More

We prefer the Tides to the Cliff. It seems more crowded and about 10% more expensive but not the food is not as good as the Tides.

We have visited many times, went twice this holiday but just seems to have lost its shine. It just felt a bit flat. Tried a few new dishes, but regretted immediately - should have stuck to what I usually have (Thai shrimp curry a must) as the fish cake for example, were a very poor starter choice. Other food good.... More

Visited here as a group of 6 friends and had a lovely evening. The food was largely good and enjoyed by all. The cocktails also very nice. Staff were very attentive and looked after us - ensuring that our drinks were topped up and very prompt. The waitress who took our orders was very nice, as were the waiters looking... More

The venue and look of this place is fantastic, but after that it all goes down hill. The service is stuffy and unhelpful for instance cocktails ordered on arrival arriving at various times and one 5-10 minutes after the others, when we were asked to move down to our table we asked if the drinks could be bought down to...

We went to the cliffs after a recommendation from a friend, then backed up by our hotel staff. The meet and greet girls were excellent in welcoming us and showing us to our pre dinner drinks lounge table. From there on the service was a little more unfriendly and unwelcoming. Our waiter seemed completely disinterested in anything we asked him.... More
