Great food and atmosphere for beach side dining whilst we stayed at Jolly Beach. The staff were very attentive and I was thrilled to get my daughter to try some local fish and really like it !

Ate here twice whilst staying at the Jolly Beach Resort. The restaurant has a nice location down by the beach. The food and presentation was v very good, a nice section of mainly fish/seafood dishes. Service very good and worth a visit.
