We visited Serendipity whilst staying at Moontide guesthouse. The reviews sounded amazing and we were in no way disappointed. All the food was prepared with such talent, care and precision. A thoroughly enjoyable experience in a beautiful setting.

It isn't a fancy restaurant but you would feel more comfortable in something better than sportswear. Comfortable but dressed up a little would be most appropriate. The setting is a personal home turned B and B. Very friendly... More
