Good food, very friendly

Great location opposite the beach, fab daytime snacks and evening food, served in an unhurried way with lots of good humour and hospitality from the staff.

We went here and used their beach beds twice. Sun beds are free with waiter service for drinks. We then ate lunch across the road in the restaurant. Fantastic service - very friendly and quieter area of the beach. Free wifi on the beach and in the bar which suited the kids when they'd had enough of the sun.

Went here on a recommendation from someone at our hotel and were not disappointed. The food was great, staff friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Reasonably priced and well cooked with a varied menu this place will not disappoint. It was the only restaurant where we were asked if we wanted coffee and/or deserts after our meal.

Food was really good, staff and location was excellent. They even provide sun beds on the beach to customers. Definitely worth trying!

The location is great, the staff are professionally friendly, but the food is average tourist fare. There was nothing wrong with it, but I couldn't rave about any of the dishes and a couple were a bit disappointing (we ate there twice).
