We ate here on the first night of our visit and on the last. On the first night, we were very impressed with the view and the waitress pointed us to a shared mixed grilled fish which was good. However, the 4 fish on the...More

Amazing view, reasonably priced wine, good service (until you mention that the food was poor) the food though, unbelievably bad, foul tasting. I LOVE seafood, however after eating here, I don't think I can ever face another prawn. Such a shame as we'd saved this...More

In terms of restaurant locations, this has got to be up there with the best. Make sure you get an outside table on a deck overlooking the sea and you won't regret it. We were there in early June and enjoyed some fabulous views and...More

Went here for an early dinner. We had not made reservation but as it was about 18.00 in the evening there was room for us. We both had swordfish and it was marvellous. Price was not bad either. Scenery is great. Recommend.

We walked to the restaurant a spent a long lunch enjoying the food, the wine and the view. Well worth the walk. Do yourself a big favour and explore this stretch of the coast. The tunnel is great fun too!
