The pizza here is amazing and well priced. Rest of the food is great too. Cheap beers, fast internet, great owners and staff and a very nice dock. The kind of place where you might stop in for lunch and stay for a day.

Perfect for sailors with a good dinghy dock. And also very welcoming for all people. A nice place to hangout, meet people, have a drink and eat for reasonable prices! The owners are very friendly and helpful with all kinds of questions.
