“Once again, had a fantastic Meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Well where do i start, great restaurant, great cocktails, great food and what a view looking over the beach.
From start to finish everyhting about it was beautiful, the food is so tasty and fresh, and the cocktails are the best on the island for me.
Be sure to make a reservation otherwise you may struggle to get a table if you just walk in, and if you book, ask for a table near the window, so you can appriciate the view.

“Best Tiramisu and Pina Colada I have ever tasted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

We ate here on the second last night of our holidays after it was recommended by a fellow holidaymaker.

We had not booked so on arrival were asked if we could wait ten minutes for a table which was great as gave us a chance to test the cocktails and I had the best Pina Colada ever.

When we were seated in the restaurant it as lovely with a nice relaxed atmosphere with very attentive waiting staff. We didnt have a full sea view as we handt booked so would recommend that you book and ask for this.

We decided to have the cured meat platter for starters to share between 4 but were advised that it was hige and did we want to split it with some cheese which we did and there was still some left over. Really Really tasty.

For the main course I had the pork chop which when it came was 2 chops with chips and salad far too much for me but very nice. Two of the party had the kekabs which were also massive and they thoroughly enjoyed. The fourth of the party had the home made burger which they also enjoyed.

We were too full for a sweet so I decided I wanted a taste of the tiramisu and when it came it also was a huge portion of which the waiting staff had brought 4 spoons. This was perfect as gave us a taster each. When we commented that this was probably the best we had tasted the waiting staff advised that the Chocolcate torte was equally as nice. When we ordered lemoncellos out came a taster of the chocolate torte which again was lovely. This was a lovely touch to let us taste it and was not applied to the bill.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the meal and wish we had tried it earlier in the week as we would have definately gone back before the end of the holiday. The staff could not have done any more for us.

I would recommend this but dont go if your not really that hungry as the portions are huge but very nice. I would suggest if you order the chops to only as for one if you dont particularly like big portions. Alternatively Its a lovely place to go and just have a cocktail or coffee etc overlooking the sea.

We had 4 in the party and also had wine and cocktails and the total bill was on average 130 euros. Well worth the money and its definately worth worth a visit.
