We loved where this place is located but we weren't too happy about the food. It presented well on the plate but had no flavour to speak of. Waitstaff very friendly.

Good place to go for casual dinner, right on the beach. Food was good and reasonable prices. Wait staff was very friendly. We got there late and kitchen was closing but nobody rushed us and we were enjoying our food and wine.
