Our choice for the first night of our holiday. Didn't book and got the last free table on the terrace. I felt like we made friends with the two waiters and met the chef as we left.

This was a nice place to eat as the staff were very customer friendly, some can be very surly.The food was ok a bit basic but tasty enough. It would suit families better as we could see they were very accommodating to families and spoke good english

We first visited three years ago and several times that holiday we were able to sit at the front of the terrace as it was May and fairly quiet. When we came back last year we just couldn't get a table on the terrace and they were quite shirty saying that if we hadn't reserved what should we expect .... More
