Dinner is served from 8 to 9:30pm. I don't know if this is only during off-season or year-round. There are a limited number of tables in the restaurant, so it is recommended that you make reservations.
We were offered a set menu with a few choices for each course. Here are the two menus my husband and I chose:
Throughout dinner, there was a man playing a piano, and it was such beautiful music. He took two short breaks; otherwise it was during the entire meal.
Service was very attentive. Our waiter(s) would come over to pour us more sparking water or more wine when we were running low. Everything was timed well so we weren't rushed with a lot of food nor were we sitting wondering when the next course was coming.
There were real flowers with a candle on the table. There was a man sitting at the table next to us. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a bright light. I turned and one of the flowers had started on fire. An amusing diversion!
We had our dinner on half-board, so drinks were not included in the price. We had a bottle of wine and two bottles of water, which came to about 20 Euros. I can't say exactly the price of dinner, either, since we were on half-board. It may have been less than the $40+ quoted above. To add half-board onto our room rate was only about 50 Euros, which is cheaper than just walking into the restaurant to eat.
Overall, a very nice place to dine if you are looking for something a little special. Dinner was absolutely wonderful. Everything we ate was perfection.
