This is not the place to visit for a refined meal. It is literally on the beach and the floor is sand. The menu is limited and you have to order and pay at the bar. You carry your own drinks to your table and...More

Great venue, great people. This is a very casual restaurant but the service is excellent and the location is great. Right on the beach! If you don not like to use plastic cutlery you are most welcome to bring you own. Food is great.
