We have only had drinks and light snacks here but the staff are exceptionally attentive and very friendly. There were quite a few diners in when we arrived and the meals seemed to be of good quality and reasonable quantity without being overpriced. The view past the island and out to sea is lovely and the position of the restaurant... More

First off, this is the best beach on an island known from its beaches. We spent a leisurely day enjoying the water and sand and views. Stopped at the cafe for coffee and ice cream and were instantly taken with the adjoining dining room. Decided to book dinner for sunset time. Granted we were not there at the height of... More

This is one of our favourite places on the island to eat. The fish is amazing - especially the fish stew! You should sit outside and then you have a great view of the beach and sunset as you enjoy the lovely food. Well worth a visit!

Chose to go here after speaking with some people we met at the hotel. They pick you up and drop you off which is an added bonus. The location is fab, looking out on the water. The dinner was very good, we had local wine which was good and in expensive. The squid starter was Mmmmmm delicious, followed by mixed... More
