We had twice dinner at this restaurant and enjoyed it very much. Good food, friendly service. Very good price/quality ratio. It is hardly visible from the road but has a nice terrace and garden. And important: they offer complimentary transport service to many guesthouses in the region!

Escape from the busy beach rd and have an experience in this excellent garden restaurant. Good choice of dishes and wines at affordable prices. We enjoyed the lovely garden. A real hidden jewel in Strand. Highly recommended.
