The hotel gave us a tip about this restaurant, and we still thank them for it. We had a great diner, both fish, served by a young waitress which was constanly smiling and laughing, which made us feel even better.

Food as I have never tried before. Everything was local and different. Book in advance and go early to enjoy the views. Owner is a native English speaker, which makes communication easier.
