We tried this off the beaten track restaurant not expecting much after a long day out and we were pleasantly surprised. Great food and nice friendly staff mean that we would def return again when in the area. I had the ribs which I usually shy away from as being too messy to eat but these were cooked to perfection...

Food was absolutely disgusting, worst arancini balls ever! I think they may have been old as they tasted like dishwashing powder was in them, I felt so ill after. Service was average too, it was pretty obvious I wasn't happy with my meal as I barely touched it, was not even asked how was the meal just given a bill.... More

My husband and I visited this place after reading reviews on here and we are glad we did. We took our 5 month old in the pram and was welcomed by the friendly staff. The food was top quality, in fact I can't remember the last time I ate so well. I had the grilled chicken and hubby had the... More

Great pizza and delivered on time to our room at the resort. Highly recommended and if in need of a cheap alternative to dining out this would have to be the choice!

This restaurant was 15mins walk from our resort 'Paradise Links' We easily got a shuttle back (called by the Restaurant £2.50pp). The food and service were very good and resonably priced - we paid $90 for 2 persons. It is located near the beach but not on it - Sand underfoot gives the beach feel !!

We went here for a meal after a day of snorkelling and it was lovely to have such great service, a nice relaxing atmosphere and such a yummy pizza. We had a garlic and cheese pizza for entree and then a large pizza with two different toppings on it and the food was brought out to us fast, drink service... More

Ate at this restaurant based on tripadvisor recommendations. Didn't disappoint. Fish special was very good and reasonably priced. Good fresh local ingredients in a fun laid back setting. Reasonably priced in a tourist town.

Place was amazing and food was great. Lovely place for a casual dinner, nice sandy floor makes it feel like dinner on the beach. Good cocktails too
