The freshest fish, friendly and attentive service and a great position (set in the dunes by the sea) and an experience to remember; but it comes at a (high) price! Still, overall a must if you are visiting this part of the world. It’s only open lunchtimes and between May and November but you must book if you want to be sure of getting in. The lobster casserole is unforgettable as well as the ‘African’ rice – make sure you start with the clams done in white wine and garlic.

We have returned to this restaurant many times, and the food is always consistant but limited if you do not like fish.
This time I just felt that the overall experience was not as we experienced last time.I am sure it will return , the location is stunning

The location is fabulous, the sea just over your shoulder and the food fresh and fishy. It's a bit overpriced by local standards but for a treat go for it. Never been at night.

We were charged 159 euros for a 2kg sea bass here yesterday. Our bill came to 370 euros for 2 x clams and 2 x prawn starters, the fish and sides of rice and tomatoes, plus 4 bottles of 16 euros wine. To describe this as anything other then robbery is seriously delusional.

25 of us went for lunch in Sept 2012 for a friend's birthday. This restaurant only opens at lunchtimes I think.

We selected the large prawns in garlic and clams in white wine with crusty bread as starters, then whole Sea Bass filleted at the table. Everything was delicious and served nice and hot.

Whilst there was initially a wait to get drinks bot it was a Sunday lunchtime and the restaurant was very busy

We got a taxi there, but I can agree with other reviewers who said that it is a little out of the way. Persevere as it is a truely amazing dining experience. You walk over a path made of old railway sleepers to get the the place which is built on stilts overlooking a nice beach.

Judith Chalmers is apparently a massive fan and other celebs are regulars here. It isn't the cheapest place to eat, but worth a visit if you are in the area. I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxed afternoon here. Afterwards we walked 20 mins. down on the beach to Julia's bar (please see separate review)

Overall I would recommend this place.
