Eating

The food served in the restaurant is top quality and very well priced. The chefs provide a varied selection of offerings, including a large vegetarian range which is something we were really happy about. Having breakfast served on the patio with hummingbirds flying around and the sun shining is quite an incredible way to begin any day of your life.
