The most casual a la carte restaurant in the resort. And - while staff is very friendly and attentive as everywhere here - the food quality is well below expectations.

Mediterranean is the guiding theme but any Italia, Spanish or Greek chef would be surprised by the rather tame and hard-bitten delivery of local dishes.

The wine list offers a nice tour along the Mediterranean - yet the red wine was way above target temperature

Service perfection, 3 of were dining and we all enjoyed 3 different entrees, mains and deserts. we all raced about our dishes. the bread was delicious and in a first for me, we were offered a choice of 6 different slats from around the world that would compliment each of our dishes. extensive wine list from around world. Current chef had cooked for me previously at my favourite Italian restaurant in Melbourne. Expensive but well worth the money

Relaxing by the pool, enjoy the outstanding view on sand dunes behind gardens, drink a glass of fruity Chile Sauvignon Blanc, eat on the spacious terrace a light Italian meal made of olives, crab salad, pasta with lobster and tomato pasta. Brilliant.
Helpful service like everywhere at QAS.

We visited the restaurant earlier this month with a group of friends, we chose to sit inside as the weather was already too hot for us.
We came across very friendly and efficient service staff- I believe their names were Renju and Umarov- and amazing food. One of my friends had a set of allergies and usually it is very difficult for him to order, but this time it was extremely easy! The chefs accommodated every single need and they ensured that his meal was not only safe but delicious as well.
The views of the golden sand dunes are just spectacular!!
When the time of the bill came all my friends agreed that this restaurant offers great value for money.
Can't wait to be back!

Lovely ambiance and very attentive staff. High quality and superb service. The atmosphere was also delightful. Although, we didn't enjoy a lot the food ...
