Came here few times already as the food and service is good. Usually get the Caesar Salad & Pizzas for the kids. Wait staff are pretty attentive as they come by to check on you.

Very nice restaurant. The food is good, they offer chairs and umbrellas, you can enjoy lunch and drinks while sitting at the beach. They have cool booths under the shade of pretty tropical trees.
