We had 2 great dinners while staying at the hotel. Beautiful local produce sensationally prepared and cooked. The staff was amazing - special mention to Sakti, she went out of her way to ensure everything was perfect.

Great food & service. Very accommodating to guests, you certainly pay for what you receive. Good couples night out won’t take the entire family though bit pricey.

An interesting menu for a country restaurant. The food was delicious, cooked well, and presented in an appetising way. Unfortunatelythey ran out of King Fish, which I had had previously. It was previously mouth watering, and served with a fennel and granny smith apple salad.
