Good location - Tasty food and good service . But a bit over priced and lacking in atmosphere . Would recommend for large groups and families rather than couples.

Absolutely one of the best seafood meals that we have had for a long time! The lobster is to die for, the shrimps are fantastic. Don't forget the chocolat moelleux at the end...you will not regret it!!

This is located on the road a little bit away from the city centre. But not hard to find, parking your car could be a little bit weird, but we ended up parking in front of the resturand and they didn't have a problem. The service was very prompt, and excellent, the stuff is very well trained, you will feel... More

Great fish dishes. Excellent service. And a great atmosphere, with beautiful view over the bay. A bit pricy, but worth it, if you like good fish dishes.

Well where to start the food was simply amazing as was the service. The sound of the waves gently crashing against the beach was very pleasing. However be ready to open your wallets if you are going there. It is by no means a cheap place. Not even close.

Service was excellent Vishel was very attentive. The food was slightly disappointing with the catch of the day being over cooked, some unusual dishes though including a sea urchin salad which was average, and the location was not quite what we expected overlooking the car park in front of the beach.

I read the reviews and our hotel manager supported our choice as the best sea food restaurant locally . We booked for the evening and were pleased to be given one of several tables directly overlooking the bay. Most of these were taken by the end of the evening but it was by no means full. We enjoyed the chefs... More
