A perfect place to dine or have drinks and catch the sunset. Excellent food, great service and a real treat when in Samara. Live music (keyboard, singing) nights. Unique beach atmosphere.

Cozy place at the beach. Good place to relax at in the sunset. Meat only ok, and small portions. Pizza really delicious. Room only for sleeping and showering, not cozy at all.
