We ate at this restaurant on 3 occasions it is a family run restaurant and this shows in the care they take to make sure you have a great time. What I would say is you need to book as it gets busy especially in the high season keep up the good work guys hopefully see you soon

I have been going for two years and the staff are still the same, always helpful, polite and efficient. It may not be the prettiest setting, but the prices are so good. So if you don't want... More
