Stunning location. Excellent attentive service and most importantly the food! The food was commendable. Rich in flavours. Garnished to perfection. So it greets your eyes and hits all the notes on your tastebuds. Definitely recommend it.

Drinks very expensive but goes with the special location. Beautiful memorable special humanist wedding event....More

Lovely walk through the cliffs where you come out on to a secluded beach, lots of information on how and why these tunnels were formed.
