Very slow service.... Waited over one hour for.starter.... Mixed seafood platter was terrible. Over cooked fish, cold squid rings and prawns tasted decidedly off! Didn't tried the pizza but honestly, the food need to improve.

Lovely place with a wonderful view directly overlooking the ocean. Great for a refreshing break/beverage in a hot day. The service is really friendly and good. And they do have live music there.

Service was good and quick. Everything was ok and atmosphere was warm. You can pay with card or cash. I ordered tuna it was good but tuna was over cooked. I recommend this place👍🏻

Lovely food - the pizzas are almost too big. Friendly and efficient service. No booking necessary. Open all day. Plenty of shade from sun. No problem with mozzys. Child friendly

The Price is no problem but make sure you let them know ahead of time when you would like to eat otherwise you might wait a lot or end up getting served at completely different times each.
