Limited but good menu with reasonable prices. Take your alcoholic beverages as this place is not licenced to sell alcohol. Corkage is free.

This restaurant is a little gem hidden away a few streets back from the beach. The staff are highly attentive and very helpful, while the food is great as well. Try the spaghetti carbonara and you will not be disappointed! The only reason I couldn't give the restaurant 5* is the lack of aircon/cooling in the summer months that just... More

Popped in for a quick lunch here. Nice Spanish style and a good menu although we did find that the food was a little salty. Service was very attentive, but there was only one other person in the restaurant. Salads looked good, I would certainly reccommend if you are craving salad or western food.

It was quite late and the place was fairly quiet; there were several couples that were dressed up nicely. They don't have a menu out the front so I went in to ask if they... More
