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!

A lovely setting, just above the beach, friendly and attentive staff, good food and lovely views, it's a tad costly for what it is, but we enjoyed it all the same!

Fantastic for relaxing and stunning sea food. The fish is so fresh its usually caught the same day. Evenings are best so you can enjoy the sunset.
