Nice restaurant overlooking beach

Small restaurant in the strip by beach, ate here three times and had good experience each time. Friendly service, reasonable prices. Very nice steaks, kebabs and grilled chicken breast. Nice atmosphere. Better than others we tried along this strip well worth visit

Lovely sea view, friendly staff and steaks to die for! Large portions though so don't have a starter unless you are really hungry!

It's located in a busy walk through to the beach. You will be approached and dragged in but hey it's not bad for the money. We have used the bar more than the restaurant for a little tipple (coffee and brandy). If you want reasonable food at at reasonable cost that what it offers.

We popped in on our first visit to the beach. What attracted us initially was the cool area at the back which was essential at lunch during a 30 degree heat.
