We had two nights on the Lido and the staff and food on the first night were so good that we also ate there the next night. Cannot speak highly enough of the very helpful staff and the food is exquisite. A great experience

Beautiful shady terrace and creative italian dishes in fine dining style. Very tasty food and not exceedingly expensive. However service was rather indifferent and very very slow although the place was almost empty at the time.

The restaurant lives up to its No 1 slot on trip advisor. The vegetarian tasting menu was gorgeous, we had a limited budget for wine and weren't disappointed with the recommendation. This is a must try whilst visiting the Lido.
