Loved this spot. Not pictured: us hiding underneath the only nook / rock ledge that provided a slither of shade ๐Ÿ˜…

I havenโ€™t fallen this hard for a place in quite some time ๐Ÿฆ‹

I was conflicted posting this; I am aware there are far worse things happening in the world but I am also aware that many of you look to my account as a travel guide and may book places as a result. I donโ€™t like to be part of any form of negativity but I felt compelled to share my experience after so many of you asked where this place was because you wanted to visit. For me, this place was the worst dining experience I have ever had. We were so excited a table was available during our dates, and even after reading the mixed reviews we decided to try it anyway as we saw it is a once in a lifetime experience. I gave them my list of food requirements (I am vegan, with severe gluten, cashew and coconut intolerances) when I made a reservation three months in advance. Upon arrival, the view took our breath away, it truly is serene, but as soon as we sat down we were told the kitchen had not and could not prepare anything not on the set menu. I am used to not being able to eat most options on a menu, but as this was a โ€œfine dining experienceโ€ and they asked for my food requirements well in advance, I was frustrated to hear I would still need to pay $180 euros for the set menu, much of which I could not eat. I ended up eating a tiny bowl of beans, two slices of vegetables and was offered a fruit plate as dessert, which I did not eat. The customer service was terrible and I was further disappointed when the staff and the chef would not acknowledge the situation. Beyond my experience, my girlfriend got the normal set menu and found it underwhelming. We are no food critics, but this food seemed to fall victim to a fancy restaurant trying to create fancy food but completely missing the mark and offering bizarre and confusing food as a result. For me, this place is not worth the money even despite the fantastic view. If you are willing to pay just to take photos, then sure, go visit, the photos will be beautiful, but if youโ€™re like us and just appreciate good service and delicious food, then I would highly suggest going to a local restaurant and ordering the $15 euro mouthwatering pasta that was easily better than what we found here for twelve times the price ๐Ÿ’” x

Photo diary from our first few hours in Puglia. I was actually here in July (the perfect time before most of Italy, and Iโ€™m sure most of the world now, holidays here) but wanted to live in the moment and make the most of every second with my best friend because we so rarely get time together, so Iโ€™m only sharing our trip now after Iโ€™ve had a moment to absorb how magical it was. Weโ€™d been planning this trip for six months and I still canโ€™t believe we managed to squeeze in our dream destination Puglia! โœจ

Rock jumping and swimming in secret caves, Puglia youโ€™re after my own heart ๐Ÿฆ‹

It took us a second (more like 45 minutes and a lot of prickly bushes later) to figure out why Google maps was taking us to a dead end with no way of accessing this cave. One would usually be defeated by this but the view from above was ๐Ÿคฏ

Is it just me or is everyone in Puglia this summer?
