Delicious sea food at the terrace of this lovely restaurant with an amazing view of the waves bashing the rocks. Stay away from the rocks pls! IT is dangerous!

Ask for the specialties and they will serve you their best! At least for the fish that is. We've only tried their fish. Location at the beach is a very nice bonus!
