It’s a nice location with outdoor seating. The meals comprises big portions but they are not particular tasteful. Very disappointing.

Wonderful meal on an outdoor patio with fabulous service. What more would one want or expect. The gin and tonic was among the best I've ever had. The watermelon soup was over-the-top great and the sea bream was so fresh. Great experience.

Sorry, don't have their menu but it is quite extensive. It's not the cheapest, but the service and quality of the food is superb. We went 4 days out 6 and never disappointed... Enjoy... James

This family run restaurant focuses on a genuine food offer together with a wide selection of wines from all over the world. We space from salads and homemade burgers at lunchtime, to the juicy sea-bream fillet and tender beef eye fillet at dinnertime. Our Italian chef also recommends our pasta dishes. We like to close the night with our signature gin&tonic: Nordes gin with camomile and ginger!!
