this restaurant have an amazing view and direct access to the beach. Having natural light and crossed ventilation with direct view to the ocean makes you feel as if you were eating at a premium location. The food is very good and prices are affordable. Love this place!!

Great place for a drink, view is wonderful. Could not comment on food as we did not tried anything. Our stop was just for drinks and the ambiance was great.
