Nice view at the restaurant. We were seated at level 4 and we could see the entire bay from the restaurant. I had seafood appetiser and beef tenderloin for my main. The food was good.

We were very disappointed with Dolce Vita as the setting and decor is beautiful- 5 stars for this. Wine list was brilliant and staff were attentive but the food let the whole thing down. The food did not suit the concept of the restaurant in...More
