Good place to have some drinks and get chill on the beach. Drinks are a little bit more expensive comparing to other places but still affordable. The music is not so good

My son and I dropped by for lunch and it was a nice atmosphere with some fun music entertainment. We ordered pizza and ice cream, the ice cream arrived first and the pizza was OK but nothing special. Wouldn't rush to go back
