“Lovely meal sat on the beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I really like the way you had the choice to sit inside or on the beach. Literally could take your shoes off and have the sand between your toes.
Food very good and staff friendly.

“Beachside Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Lovely fresh seafood right on the beach. A great restaurant with a lovely ambience. The selection of seafood is great - would recommend the Wahoo and Tuna carpaccio.

“Fab seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is a great restaurant, right on the beach so you can eat dinner with your feet in the sand! Not much to look at from the outside and a little off the beaten track but worth a visit. Great seafood and even the pasta was good. Also good value for money, friendly staff and busy enough to have a great atmosphere, even out of season.

Good location right on beach, extensive menu, warm service. Good fresh fish, average presentation. Reasonable value for money compare to hotel resturants.

“A real food experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Located straight on the beach just off the pier, on the sand beach and informal but many locals go there as it has the best daily catch of the day of Dorado, Tuna and Wahoo ...and local lobster....perhaps the only restaurant with fresh lobster....their raw fish starter is a real experience to try but also all their grill offering.....
