This was a really nice little restaurant on the beach where you can sit on the beach. The food was good although it was very quiet. I had the whole seabas which was really nice and so fresh.

Place is set right on a nice stretch of beach and have their own lounge chairs...great spot for families as adults can eat/drink while kiddos play and swim. Our family spent over three hours at the restaurant and had a great meal and experience overall.
