I had a lovely snack lunch here with my friend's mum and my dog. I'm not sure if dogs are allowed inside but there is a large outdoor seating area with dog water bowls provided.

We went her for dinner on our visit to the island. We originally booked a table inside which looked lovely but sat outside as it was nice and we got there earlier. Loved the fresh fish and the food was generally of a high standard.
