Nice little place on the beach with beautiful views. The Seafood platter is wonderful and enough food for 4 people or more. Service was average, but sitting on the beach enjoying the food and views make this worth the stop.

We specifically stopped here for lunch following a friend’s recommendation. The surroundings were beautiful! Very peaceful & relaxing. We ordered the lobster which was overlooked & tasted like rubber. Way too overpriced for the quality.
