Food is generally very good and the staff who we know are very helpful and polite. They always have a good selection of fish and give you a complimentary port after the meal. It can get very busy so it is best to time your arrival

Lovely place in the daylight on the beach - FAB ! It was dark when we returned in the evening but you could still hear the waves crashing around you. Waiters really friendly and attentive. It would have been nice to have cheese as a cover but that didnt spoil the meal. I had duck which was amazing really tender and tasty. My friend had the rump steak with all the trimmings picanta style. She was disappointed when the trimmings were grilled pineapple and banana, blackbeans and rice !! Her face was a picture !!! Not a mushroom or onion in sight. If we had asked this would have been explained so it was our fault. The steak was lovely. We had a fun evening and went home very full ! Would definately go again and look forward to it.

This was our first visit here( didn't know it was there until this year), the food was very good with a good choice. The prices were up around the top end of the market but worth it. I would imagine that in the high season it would be very lively with the cocktail bar and beach disco.

Our third visit to this restaurant was disappointing. Location is great, food pretty average, but service was poor. There was no pâté and olives to start, only bread and no complimentary port at the end. It felt as though the whole place was at the fag end of the season. The waiting staff were subdued. The owner who usually acknowledges us didn't and we left without anyone bidding a goodbye or thank you. We have found better and will be giving this one a wide berth in future.
