Nice restaurant in front of the Beach with very attentive staff taking care of the customers. Delicious food also. The staff speak several languages. The menu is a mix between Spanish and international food. We were here for a two days trip.

Great Paella, but the cheese cake! Wow! It had a bit of coffee in it and the waiter said there was also a touch of amaretto! Brilliant. The coffee was also very good, not had many great cups of coffee while being in Spain!
