We apologise for the lateness of this review but due to a close family bereavement some reviews were overlooked. We had lunch at this restaurant which is right on the beach, is very relaxed and has a calm but nevertheless laid-back beach bar atmosphere.

Great and friendly service from Johnny! Food is excellent and well priced. We liked their Calamari and stuffed jumbo shrimp. Family place with a fantastic beach view. Did I mention that it is on the beach!
