We had several meals here as the fish was excellent and really fresh,the service was quick and attentive, prices reasonable, I loved the fried vegetable starter, calamari, we shared several dishes and there was a great buzz and atmosphere. House wine was priced competitively.

An excellent place to view the old lighthouse. Free parking and a place where you can see the sights. Enjoy a cup of coffee and relax in a small cafe.
