Interesting, varied and value for money. Staff is great and so is the food. Half portions of mains available. Very interesting menu with the basics but also plenty for the more adventurous.

Location is quite nice in terms of views towards the beach, especially if you can sit outside. Food tasted really good and was decorated nicely as well. Service was friendly, quick and helpful. It's 4/5 instead of 5/5 because the best tables with beach views are situated behind a huge fridge which makes quite an annoying sound (not cool at... More

Went there recommended by our guest house manager. Though the views are beautiful, the decoration is outdated; this might be only my appreciation but well, this place reminded me to the Golden Girls series shootings (Florida, '80s). Food not to my taste. I enjoy well prepared basic ingredients where you don't need to mask flavours under thick sauces. This place... More

Although the restaurant decor and menu are extremely dated, very 70's, the food was excellent! Stunning sea views, friendly and efficient staff with a good wine menu. I cannot elaborate enough on the food, 5 different starters and 4 different main courses and everybody wanted to lick their fingers!! Would recommend their food to anybody.

The atmosphere and layout of the restaurant is good and staff all very nice but the food and appreciation of cold wine is lacking. Suspect the grill was broken!
