This restaurant is beyond words for the bad quality of food. Unfortunately everything was closed at the time that we wanted to eat lunch (16:30) and we ended up to this place. Two plates of seafood pasta that we had, arrived in 6 minutes meaning...More

We have eaten here before, and I strongly recommend the wood cooked pizzas as well as the galettes. The terrace looks onto a tatty carpark, and the council have now added a motorbike stop just the other side of the glass. The service is polite...More

We just took a pasta here with a coffee or thea. This was literally what we get. Do not expect anything fancy or great. It is not very expensive and the food is acceptable. Also here, they must have it from the location and the...More

The rooms above the restaurant are ok. Only 1 power outlet. The food, expensive and so far the worst food we have ever had in another country. Service was even worst than the food. Dont eat here. Sept 2017.

Quick service although not very frendly. Pizzas with too much cheese but fine. The restaurant didn't seem very clean specially the toilet. Average price.

Bad service and they allow dogs in the restaurant one barking loudly and trying to attack other dogs as they entered. Only 1 friendly waitress. Food nothing special

Just a few metres off the beach front, this restaurant is very popular and good value. The lunch and dinner menu is simple but comprehensive, and the staff very friendly and attentive. We ate here on several occasions.

Staff pleasant, food terrible, toilet stinks. I cannot understand why anyone would give this place a good review. And all at rip-off prices!

We went for an early dinner (530/6pm) with our kids. The staff were disheveled, the table we sat at had a cooked onion on one seat, crumbs on another, and a small bucket of water beside on the floor (I assume for cleaning?). Kids' and...More

I went there after walking through the cliffs. At the time, the service was not the best, but the galette was amazing. I eat one with chevre cheese. For drink we ask for the sensational apple cider. I would come back!
