“We have been here a few times (on special occasions as it is not cheap!) and have always had the tasting menu. The food is incredible, plus a lovely atmosphere and beautiful views over Watergate Bay. It is worth asking if they will be able to seat you by the window when you book, so you can make the most of the views.”
