This place is a must. As we family of 6 we eat here on several occasions. The kids loved it. Spaghetti with pesto is my sons favourite and this was the only restaurant we found it. The pizza were brilliant. Don't miss out, book a table you won't be disappointed 🍕🍸🍝😃

I don't think we would have even noticed this lovely restaurant if we had not read the excellent tripadvisor reviews. It overlooks the sea but is slightly set back and upstairs in the 'Commercial Centre'. Find Burger King and you should find it. We booked a table just in case but it wasn't too busy. The food was excellent -... More
