We called in here by chance and were made to feel very welcome by the owner who gave us a table overlooking the sea. A waiter who was very friendly took our order for garlic prawns and garlic mushrooms as starters and I ordered a steak and beef stroganoff for my wife as main courses. I asked if they could... More

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.
