We have taken great pains to construct a delicate and well balanced wine list consisting of good economical wines and high quality fine wines to be available for our guests to enjoy at reasonable rates. Focusing on those wines that would refresh in a tropical climate, match well with meats and especially the abundant local seafood, we wanted to make sure we have wines which can also blend well with spicy local foods. We think we can provide something tasteful for most wine lovers at a fair price. Please ask our staff to recommend wines that best match your food, we hope your selection will delight you.
We have taken time to construct a comprehensive list of favourites, which cool and refresh those by the pool and help create a heaalthy appetite before dinner.

We also prepare an extensive range of alcohol free Mocktails, which are available for those who prefer not to consume alcohol.
Mixed drinks, Martini’s and Malt Whisky are our specialty for those that enjoy pre dinner drinks. Refreshing smoothies and alcohol based iced teas are ideal during the heat of the day, with more traditional cognac, port or whisky after dinner. We can satisfy most tastes and our fruit based Smoothies are a special favourite for the children.
Knowing the popularity of snacks and short bites whilst enjoying predinner drinks, we have taken the time to construct a menu of international and local favourites to help sharpen your appetite whilst you enjoy some quality time together before dining.
