  • I frankly expected something better, more in line with the proclaimed gastronomic level. While the quality, presentation and originality of the dishes is acceptable, it is not neither price nor its elaboration. The steak tartare "of"the House", a little disappointing; Cherry, very disappointing sorbet ice cream dessert. Perhaps keep in mind that diners are there more on the beautiful enclave that is that same food itself. Eye, the prices shown in the chart are without VAT (although there is mention of this).

  • Honestly we didn't like, mostly because it seems a tad out of the context of other properties in the area, especially the beach.
