Tasty food at reasonable prices. The grilled fish was simple but delicious (garlic + butter). Friendly waitstaff and chill ambiance - would definitely recommend.

We have enjoyed a fantastic lunch before finishing our holidays. My suggestion: do not miss to try grilled calamari! Delisious! Very good attention from Samith. All the best!
