Funky beach bar with great staff

Great cocktails at 5€ each, moquitos and strawberry daquiris are especially good, served to your sunbed. Hamburger and chips for only 5€, which is a great price for on the... read more

This is a truly lovely looking restaurant and is run by two brothers in a stunning location. It is a novelty that the fish is barbecued outside the restaurant and adds to the whole romantic setting. The food is pretty pricey compared to other local restaurants, which wouldn't be an issue if the quality matched the price. The sea bass... More

We visited here and hired sun beds for the day (9€ for 2) and enjoyed a hit day by the sea. We decided to have an alcohol drink each (southern comfort) which was quite expensive (13€ for 2) but upon tasting it we quickly realised why...there must have been about half a bottle of spirits in each large plastic cup...
