Description
(BY PRIOR RESERVATIONS ONLY/6YRS PLUS) We believe that food is a vitally important part of your holiday. Indulgent dishes, home-grown fusion and old-school favourites come together in a thoughtfully curated menu. Eclectic choice and mouthwatering flavours combine to take your taste buds on a journey so, if you’re looking for something beyond the norm in Tangalle come to us! Our versatile chefs happily go ‘off menu’ if their daily changing menus aren’t quite enough for you and, work to a strict buy fresh-cook fresh policy. Oceanfront the restaurant, our pool deck, upper lounge and a separate bar area give one too many options almost, to have a meal or sit, and soak up the views.
