We came across this restaurant whilst walking along the coastal path one evening. The setting is amazing, with the most beautiful views across the sea. Idyllic you may think? But beware, the service from the staff was awful if not down right rude and the...More

Nice simple fish restaurant nearby our hotel. Has an inside and outside service. We sat inside and enjoyed a great fish and seafood meal and a fair price and good service.
