All our dishes are inspired by foods and flavors from around the world; from China to Italy, from Peru to Portugal. Our ingredients are fresh and prepared in a tasty and healthy way to keep vitamins and minerals intact. We offer a good list of cocktails and much more. Please come and enjoy our friendly service on a great terrace next to the beach. We also have a space dedicated to italian Pizzas and Pasta on the top floor, open terrace with a great view over the square. (We also offer take-away service).

“Great for cocktails”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

After an evening meal we would head to Jan for a mojito or two consistantly good, great place to sit out soak up the atmosphere listen to the bands and singers playing on the beach stage facing the square. The crepe's are well worth a try as a light snack.
A great place to chill out day or night.

“Great place for lunch”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Jan does a great range of flat read sandwiches, salads and noodles for lunch. It's right next to the beach so is great spot for lunch after a morning in the sun. I wouldn't say its great for dinner, but they do a nice range of cocktails for a drink in the evening. The other big plus is that its right on the square where bands play in the evening, so adults can have a drink while kids run about and dance to the bands which play in the evening.

“Could do better”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Nice venue and staff. Food was tasty but the nachos consisted of tortilla chips and 2 small pots of salsa/guacamole..very average. The soya stir fry was tasty but not worth 14euros which was more than the meat version!

Stopped of for bite to eat. Looks very smart. My wife and I had a pitta each and were very disappointed. Went across road to get something else.
