There is nothing to dislike about this rest. The front row seats to the spectacular sunsets daily are not on the menu and are free of charge. The service is perfect.

We ordered the margharita pizza and the Mexican virgin (veg and cheese quesadilla). We went there because it was within walking distance from our hotel. Our food was poor quality. Similar to cafeteria food. Will not eat there again. Drinks were fine and atmosphere beautiful.

I ordered the chicken kabob, which wasn't very adventurous, but after a day of travel I needed something easy. We were seated on a platform right on the beach. It was seasoned very well, generous,...

Started our meal with the fried calamari which was cooked perfectly (it was. It chewy). I had the lentil soup which was cooked exactly... More

Both our meals were very good, but.......we ate in the open air dining room and there were so many flies you could not enjoy your dining experience It is a shame, because the food and presentation was okay.
