Highly recommend the shrimp in tomato sauce, filet mignon with mushroom sauce, calamari roman style or 1/4 chicken dinner. Everything on the menu is cheap and delicious.

We had twice coffees and lunch at this restaurant. Perfect location if you want hide away from the sun in lunch time and gets some refreshments. We had fish soups (2CUC), fish fillets with rice and veg (7CUC), coffes (2CUC). The kitchen is open, you could see how do they prepare their food. We would recommend this little beachfront restaurant... More

One of the best paellas my husband has eaten. It's the only dish he's ordered here and we've gone several times. The garlic shrimp dish is one of my favourites. Friendly service and moderate prices.
