We enjoyed the tapas very much, particularly the shrimp and chicken. The Monday lobster night was also good.

We visited this restaurant which was a short walk from our hotel resort. Kim our server explained the menu and based on her recommendations, we started with the Bruchetta followed by the Poulet and Taglitelle and finished with the apricot tart. All were excellent. We ate by the pool and had a very pleasant dining experience. Even though the menu... More

A bit pricey, but the service is excellent by the pool. Had the risotto, which was heavenly. Romantic setting. Great wine selections.

Not the most pleasant walk from the Palm Court hotel and back: 20 minutes back in the dark on a dirt sidewalk used by dogwalkers. Poolside dining was pleasant: Salad with goat cheese and walnut honey vinaigrette; Scallops with leeks and quinoa; beef kebabs. 150 Euros with a nice wine. The only time in a week where a boisterous table... More
