“Great lunchtime spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We went seeking a relaxing lunchtime spot to enjoy the wonderful views out over the beach/ sea and soak up the early spring sunshine! We were not disappointed. Had the best seafood kebab ever (huge prawns) and tasty monkfish, and my husband had chicken piri piri. Waiter service very good and pleasant. We will most definitely return, but imagine we got the best experience being off season and less busy.

“Nice pizza, great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We booked a table but needn't have as only half a dozen tables were taken on the night we dined. Booking did reserve us a nice beach/sea view table upstairs on the roof - great location!
We had a garlic bread to share for starter and 4 pizzas which were great. The waiters were friendly and brought out a pizza in the shape of a head complete with fuzzy hair for our youngest daughter. The house wine was nice. All in all a good meal in a great location.

“Nice for a change”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Welcoming staff and very extensive menu. Food quantity is excellent, however overuse of salt inhibits the flavour, especially of delicate fish.

“Great meal, made our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We visited on a weekday about 12:30 just at the start of the lunch period so there was only one other couple in the restaurant. We ate upstairs to enjoy the lovely view out over the sea. We felt very welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. The waiters were all very multilingual and happy to help. Service was prompt without being rushed. They server up lovely San greia. I had the king prawn from the grill which was massive and cooked perfectly. Very happy and would love to go back again someday. Highly recommended. Could be packed in during busy periods.
