There was a lot to like about this restaurant. Reasonably priced, the food was excellent in quality and decent sized servings. The location is great right on the beach, lovely for dinner and equally suitable for meals throughout the day. The service was excellent.

The place is best suited for evening or late night, although it closes at 11 PM but its a nice feeling to drink and eat with open sky and hearing the sound of waves
