The food is very good and the service is ok. Just a bit in the background of the village so you need to walk a little to go there...

Very good food...not outstanding. A walk up the hill from the center of town or from the beach. Service a bit slow but food cooked to order and very good.

Great spot to grab a bite, recommend,... More
