The owner picked us up at 10, from our villa, & we spent the day at Scoobys. The waitress was so lovely, attentive and friendly... More

Enjoyed a... More

Was quiet so plenty available subbeds, shade and tables. Lunch was very good, extremely generous portions. Chile tasty, baked potato very good, not a bad burger and the biggest... More
