One guest said of the restaurant, "We ate in the hotel restaurant each night; after the first night we were reluctant to go anywhere else, working our way through the menu we found the quality of the food to be outstanding. Book a table in advance making sure it is by the window, get there a while before sunset and watch the sun setting as you enjoy the food."
