This is an "in the rough" kind of restaurant. They have indoor seating but the outside is where it happens. Nice tables set amongst the grass at the edge of the ocean. If you are there for a sunset you have picked the perfect time....More

My title said it all. It has the finest sunsets! The children can run around, but you will pay for this. My suggestion is to go ahead with eyes wide open that the food is ok but the cost is high.
