Very nice place and nice staff but the food offer is very poor the menu is not changing and not offering any special plates. They do not have sparkling water or coke at dinner. Crazy

I actually saw people order then go off for a swim. The WiFi was decent enough to pass the time. It really was worth the wait for the grilled fish of the day it was so fresh

The decorum is simple: few tables next to a swimming pool, TV, bar and souvenir shop. Great service and food. Fairly inexpensive, yet very good food.

I ate here one night with friends. The atmosphere wasn't great, the wifi wasn't working, but the food was quite good. My friend said his cocktail wasn't very good.
