Guest Review

Santo and his team organised a perfect wedding celebration for my daughter and son in law. A wonderful location with stunning views providing a beautiful backdrop for photos. Fabulous food including great options for the vegetarians and vegan in our party. Santo provided help and advice during the planning and was a marvellous master of ceremonies on the day. He attended to our every need and nothing was too much trouble. His team were so helpful and well organised. We couldn’t possibly have asked for anything better. Highly recommended.

“We came for lunch on Mothers Day & had a wonderful time. Both the food & the service were faultless. So good that we booked a short break for later this year before we left.”

“Exceptional! We had our wedding at Santo’s 4th April and we were delighted with every aspect. All of the staff provided an excellent, friendly service and made everybody’s stay a very pleasant one! The food was fantastic – we had comments from guests that it was the best food at a wedding that they had ever had. The food at the restaurant the night before was superb too. All credit to Santo and his marvellous team, we loved every minute! Thank you for making our wedding so special. We will be back to stay and eat in the future for sure!”
