Seemed a bit posh after all the easy-going, cross-legged places around. Food was alright, but more expensive compared to other (and local) places.

Not only was this one of the best restaurants we ate in during our holiday, the staff were also great! Highly recommend going here if you are in the area! Staff were so attentive and friendly, especially the British blonde girl, would certainly come here again if we were to return.

The best seafood I have had in awhile, but what makes this place special is the staff. I have been in the hospitality industry for over 20 years, and working in hotels we all want great staff. I now know where all the great staff are. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the menu, not afraid to give recommendations. There is... More

Well worth a visit. Not the cheapest place to eat, but the surroundings & food are worth that bit extra. If you are living on a budget but have enough to splash out once during your stay, this is an ideal place to do it.

Thank Petek999
