Great outdoor patio with umbrellas looking out over the Atlantic Ocean. Offerings are traditional for the area including squid, blood sausage with pineapple and grilled fish. Highly recommend squid and tuna. The hot pots are outstanding. Located near the municipal pools.

A must go restaurant to go. The fish plates are very good (grilled sea bass, sea rice, octopus..) but also the meat is excellent. The view is excellent. Average price 20/25€ pax.
