Local products, including tuna and octopus, prepared with a sophisticated palate, creatively presented and delicious. Specialty drinks can be enjoyed in the outdoor dining area.

You should eat dinner here if you like creative, well prepared cuisine, served by superb staff, in a beautiful treed courtyard setting. The best on the island, for a long time.

The chef is excellent and they use mostly fresh ingredients. While the vegan options are not plentiful, Israel (the chef) can create dishes that can meet your needs.
