We have seen this place on a number of occasions when walking along the beach. It is accessible from the main road but also from the beach. We dropped in for a quick drink and a snack and enjoyed this on the outside of the bar/restaurant overlooking the beach. Staff were helpful. Good selection of food. My only moan was... More

Wow! Fantastic sea food in a wonderful location. I little bit off the main road so you need to know where your going but well worth the trip and when you get here it's right on the beach looking into the sea - fantastic!

We visited today with our two girls. The owners and personnel were really nice. Beautiful food and awesome views at the sea. We had a really great 'cataplana' and sea bass. We will return here!
