Decided to have a special lunch at the beach, what a lunch! Great selection of fresh seafood, especially the fish. My wife's portion of sea bass was for two and I had a large plate of grilled mackerel... Top marks.., and the very nice waitresses speak English too

We went here for a late lunch yesterday. I could have guessed the meal wouldn't be good before I even ordered. It was very hot inside the restaurant and our table for 4 was directly under a ceiling fan. I politely asked the waitress if she could please put the fan on. She looked at me and her face just...

I've been here several times before but this is the first time I've reviewed it. Decided to go back there for lunch last week and had a really good meal. We ordered the rice with seafood. Out came a huge lidded pan with enough to feed 4 people (there were two of us!) and it was really delicious. Rice with... More

Stopped here on our 1st night. Booked a table for 6.30, not really required but you never know. Baked fish for husband and I had fresh Tuna. Both dishes were amazing. There was a 30 minute wait for the baked fish but with the stunning views and location it wasn't a problem. Our following 5 visits included more baked fish,mackerel,... More

The place is absolutely at coast, so you can enjoy the sea view and planes taking off. The seafood was very delicious. We had seafood rice. Note: in the menu it was mentioned that dish is for two people, but not mentioned that the price is for 1 (we didn't know that, and were surprised when the bill came). Other... More

Our family dined here one evening as the town was having their annual festival. The town itself and the area by water is so cute. The restaurant is nice, nothing spectacular, white table clothes, clean. Service was decent, however, I don't know if it was because they were overworked due to the festival or what. Two of the staff who... More

On the sea front - with seating outside just feet from the waves. The fish are always fresh. I've had a mixed grilled fish with multiple types of tuna which was an experience. For vegetarians (and vegans) there is a hot vegetable dish - vegetables cooked in a sauce with rice which my partner always welcomes after too many cheese... More

We visited this as its right on the seafront. The fish is amazing. Service is quite slow but the standard of food more than makes up for it. Prices are good too. A nice night out
