Location at the beach => higher prices. Just typical food, language skills poor. We would not choose this one again.

following other recommendations we gave this place a go.Had delicious salmon torta and huge hamburger. Went back in the evening for a light snack and a bottle of wine while we listened to the live music. (Wed and Sun evenings) Main courses looked good too but very large so be hungry or share.

In May 2015, we stopped by this restaurant to have a small lunch. we had a table right on the beach and the service was excellent. The food was great and fast. The price value was also pretty good.

Food was fantastic, steak for my partner and a gambas and prawn salad for myself, the creme brûlée was amazing and arrives on fire in a jar with awesome presentation!

A wide choice of all kinds of small dishes. Lounging and eating with a view... THAT is celebrating your holidays. They have never disappointed me. I have been here for a few years in a row.
