But the best bread I tasted was the one they serve at this place. Its the lady who is the chef who makes it, using local organic flower. So I... read more

But the best thing about this... More

Great location, a little bit away from the busy streets. You can even get a table right at the shore, but watch out for big waves ;-) We went there twice, and it was mostly because the steak was perfekt.

Food and service are of equally high quality. Super friendly and polite staff, and the view is nice. Just try to go around sunset, otherwise your view all be the people leaving the beach with children, etc.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was plentiful and tasty. You could sit out on the jetty if you didn't mind the occasional wet foot!

The restaurant is nicely located along the beach. The food is very tasty reasonably priced. Service is efficient, not too present adding to a relaxed atmosphere, might benefit from some advice on professional waiting, as men were served before the two ladies and plates were not served from the right as normally done. The friendly approach and good advice made... More
