My recent dinner here made for a beautiful evening. We sat outside near the shallow pools. I opted for beef starter and fish for my main. Both were beautifully prepared without being heavy. Recommended

Nice seating, very friendly staff and great menu choices even for kids. So no french fries for kids but beautiful veggie and seabass, which our little toddler loved! Amazing coctails, great soups and tuna salad is a must!
