The atmosphere is simply amazing, the waves crashing against the windows; salty fresh air alerts you to fresh fresh fish on the way... have the boulabaise starter, follow through with the simple yet yummy hake and chips.

Avoid eating in the upstairs Cabin section. 80 minute delay for food, no offers to refill our drinks while we waited. Waited another 25 minutes for our bill. When we didnt tip the waitress informed us it wasnt her fault the kitchen were so slow (a bit tasteless to comment on the lack of tip after such appalling service). The food however is great and have never had problems on the other decks.

Had an excellent lunch, staff are friendly and helpful and always on hand when needed. Great fresh fish with sidings of german potato salad and roasted veg salad. Much nicer than standard french fries and ugly soggy spinach you get at other restaurants!

Fantastic place for a drink and enjoy the wild surf!! Food average, service ok. Visited mainly by locals and can be a bit rowdy on weekends.

Taken here by some local boat crew while on a film shoot. Don't be put off by the creepy smelly way you have to get TO the place....once there the pizza is top class and the service is cool. Really great staff. It's right by the sea....as in, the waves actually lash up against the windows! Awesome! If you are looking for cool pizza and a local bar vibe, check it out.
