They have a terrific idea with the lava stones and we both enjoyed our food. The restaurants needs to change it's marketing strategy. Less hotel and bar, more restaurant. It felt like a dining room in a hotel (which I imagine it is). It need to have more exclusivity, so you cannot here the bar and people at reception. Change the layout. Put the restaurant where the bar is and block it off from the hotel.
Delightful surroundings coupled with good food made for an excellent evening. The staff were discreet yet attentive. We are certainly looking forward to visiting again.
The food was lovely but the service was not. Was fine when I first arrived, the waiter was very attentive but when more guests arrived they couldn't cope. One minute he was serving behind the bar, then taking phone calls, then at the reception desk then disappeared altogether. After my main course I waited 25 minutes for someone to come and ask if I wanted anything else. Eventually I had to go to the bar to ask for the bill. He took me to reception and said ' its like Fawlty Towers in here' and banged his head on the desk! Very very unprofessional.
