Like all restaurants on the Island, this is somewhat pricey. However, we both had salad which was excellent. Nice vibe in the restaurant, even though we were given about the worst table. I was too tired to object, but next time I will speak up....More

We have been coming here for a long time and it rates as one of our favourite restaurants in the area. We both order the seafood pasta for lunch ...huge serving and a great variety of seafood. We will be back again soon.
