If you want to see a beautiful sunset and enjoy some great local food, you’ve come to the right place. This restaurant has been with the family for over 50 years. There are many choices and everything is made fresh.

Amazing staff, and very affordable fresh fish. The drinks are not expensive and the view of the beach is great. Favourite place to go for Sunday lunch.
