Great atmosphere and beachside location. We visited with family friends. Plenty of menu options including fish, poultry and meat. A lovely atmosphere and stunning views over the seas. Food was all reasonable but the fish was very good. I would recommend this establishment. One point i would make is that the floor and surroundings were a little scruffy. But this... More

Ive been visiting the restaurant and beach bar for many years and the food remains good. Family run, great location on the beach and yards from the sea, Lamb and steak are always fab. Refurbishment work carried out in 2015 which was needed but the atmosphere here is always lovely. With the new lovely walkway next to it a must... More

Beautiful meal with very good service, lovely view of the Mediterranean Sea we will definitely be back again. Meals are just the perfect portion. There is shelter over the tables to keep the sun of you, they serve a wide selection of dishes from fish to steak and very reasonable prices.

Found this place after being very disappointed by a restaurant very close. It was busy but we managed to get a seat inside. Located on the beach front, a prime location. Waiters were generallybattentive, even though it was a super busy lunchtime. Ordered some tapas, the pimentos Fritos were huge, great crispy whitebait and a large house salad. Couldn't have... More

My cousins , partner and myself went down here for dinner . Sitting outside on the beach with the waves rolling beside us was an idyllic back drop . The service and quality of food were both excellent .

Great evening, 20 women aged between 27 and 57 all out for Dinner. Fantastic atmosphere right on the beach. Everyone was satisfied and very happy. Great friendly restaurant, which I personally have been going to for 15 years!

Visited twice this week and the food and service was outstanding considering it was so so busy. Best to arrive early for lunch during this busy season and a reservation is advisable to guarantee the shade if thats what you want. The Sangria Blanca is the best on the coastline and the new addition of one gambon is in fact... More
