This restaurant was very pleasant, with efficient service and delicious food. The view of the sea was awesome, the calimari was plentiful and fresh and the white wine was crisp and fruity dry. What could be a more pleasant way to spend an hour?

Food and drinks were excellent, my girlfriend had one of the champagne taster flights and that was really fun and tasty. Service was also very good. The restaurant is clean and large, and the bathrooms were also very clean. Expensive, but the quality is there.
