Lovely place to go in the evening for a meal or for a lunchtime snack. The English couple that run it are very friendly and helpful.

The staff were superb. Nothing was too much trouble. As for the food, excellent and reasonably priced. Everything home cooked the mega breakfast set you up for the day. We visited most days for either food or a drink during our 14 day holiday.

In search of fish and chips one night we came across Marcos. The lady was very apologetic about not having any cod left but we were quite happy with the Haddock that they did for us with chips and mushy peas. Bill with water and wine was less that €30 and the food and service were very good
