For $295 (discounted from $330) per night we were very disappointed with the King Room villa. It was tired, furniture run down, very basic features, no sound system, it was cold on arrival, and would not return.

The view is great but you get the same view elsewhere.

The restaurant was much better. Eat there but find somewhere else to stay.

Had dinner here recently celebrating a wedding anniversary. A cold winter's night but the wood heater was doing a great job. Prompt and efficient service delivering mouth watering meals. A very extensive wine list.

This was an exceptional experience from start to end. Service was fantastic, providing you with everything but not overdoing it. Very very friendly. Good was outstanding, the octopus entree was great as was the fish of the day. Beef stifado was good too and the tzatziki was great starter. Really liked the touch of handing out an ouzo before dinner. The only downside was that in the winter it gets dark so early that you can't take advantage of the view (as the restaurant only opens at 6pm) which we think would have been fantastic but can't judge...

Had dinner here mid week as a work group of five. Spectacular views through floor to ceiling windows over Skene's Creek towards the ocean and onto Apollo Bay. Excellent food and professional service. Good wine list. Expensive but reasonable value. An enjoyable life experience!

Simply put our meals were sublime.
The eggplant entree had me (a complete carnivore) considering vegetarianism. Smoky tones and beautifully blended flavours. My main the blue eye fish was fantastic. The fish melted in my mouth.
I loved my meal so much I ignored dessert. Unheard of!!
My husbands Scollops were lovely too.
Go during the day to appreciate the floor to ceiling Windows.
Service was great too
