Good food especially the calamari, casual and rustic atmosphere with beach sand floors. The kids had fun at the play area, prices a bit on the high side for the casual vibe imo but the view is great toward the sea side - would be nice if they could put up a fence / screen between the play area and...

We arrived early and decided to wait at near the pier. My uncle insisted we try the place out,as he had been there previously and enjoyed the overall experience of dining in the sea sand. Doors + open sign was up by 5.15pm, but as we entered,we were curtly told that the kitchen doesn't open till 5.30pm, which was fine... More

Firstly, the name is really deceptive. No tapas is served here. We had the seafood platter for two, which is massive! We had to get a takeaway and still couldn't finish it when we had the leftovers for supper the next day. The food was okay. Not particularly delicious, but not bad either. This restaurant needs to pay attention to... More

We were told about this place so we couldnt miss out on what the fuss was about. Very casual and for the beachgoers its perfect as you dont need shoes, lol. The menu is busy and the food all round was very good, only hiccup was the slow service and repeated orders even though the resturant was empty (Arrived as... More

I read about the bad reviews and we decided to try it anyway. We were pleasantly surprised. They were very busy but service seemed to run smoothly. I had the line fish and prawns and my husband had the rib, calamari and prawn combo. Portions are large and both were very enjoyable. I didn't hear any complaints from other customers... More

With your feet in the sand, you will enjoy the most lovely dishes. Seafood as well as meat, pasta's etc. Difficult to enter by wheelchair, but the staff will make a way for you !

Nice location with easy, free parking. Sand floor. Pleasant ambience - surfer style. Our high expectations were dashed by the very poor food quality. I chose the Rib & Calamari combo with chips. The ribs were cremated and so tough they were inedible, the calamari were part tender and part as tough as bike tyres. My wife chose a fish... More

We were very excited to visit this restaurant with the "beach" vibe, however, it did not quite live up to the expectation. The place felt a bit neglected on the hygiene side and whilst the kids were playing in the sand the dug up cutlery and the like :-( The food looked very nice with large portions being served, but...
