Much like the hotel that Risette forms part of, Casa Ellul, this is the most romantic, divine and unique spot on the island. Great service, sublime dishes(and presentation) and a magnificent wine list. A definite must. Beautiful decor too. 👌🏻🙌🏻

For an aperitif, starter, main course, dessert, coffee and half a bottle of wine, I'd say it would be about a €100 per head.
