Food was very average, only snack menu available pre midday so expect the usual fried food and burgers. Most if the reviews on here are for the latter menu which we didn't manage to go back for after this first visit.

louis and isabel are friendly and accomodating... relaxed and chilled out... as a solo traveller, felt comfortable eating and drinking there by myself... the food was good, the beer was cheap and the restaurant/bar is in an ideal place on the side of the apartments and next to the pool... would def spend time here again

Ate here 5 times during our 7 night stay, and each time the service and food were excellent. The menu was extensive - from vegetarian to their superbly prepared fish and steaks. Highly recommended

We ate here several times throughout the week, food was average,staff not very forthcoming. The restaurant and bar are closed on Monday's, if raining and unable to get a taxi you are then confined to your room. (Unless you are prepared for rain!)
