Unlike the other reviews, the service was fair on a very busy Saturday night. Friendly and professional. The food was excellent although the portions could be a bit bigger. The interior creates a nice atmosphere and the view from the first floor is magnificient.

Have been there with some friends and it was such a bad experience.....To be honest, when I entered the restaurant, I was really excited because the decoration in the restaurant is really nice.

Restaurant right on the boardwalk. Reservation not necessary and can accommodate large groups. Our family of 8 can stop in after an afternoon on the beach and have the daily meal for 12 euros or a large gourmet meal. Staff is always friendly.
