First of all, I've never seen staff this unfriendly before. That goes for all the waiters we've seen. The food is ok but not worth it in my opinion. There's an overall bad vibe so I don't recommend if you're looking to have a good...More

Modern presentation of traditional food. Good quality. Cozy and comfortable atmosphere, a kind of surfer bar. The view of the Mediterranean and the beach are pleasant to chill the whole afternoon.
