The seaside setting is wonderful and for those interested in a casual and quick meal, or simply a few drinks on the terrace, this is a good place to enjoy the moment. If you are looking for less typical food choices, you may want to look around.

It is a big bubble, the place is not worth of its prices. We spent almost 30 USD per 2 persons for dinner, it was equal to 12 USD dinner at other places. So I think it should be 3x better service and food, or someone made mistake on calculating price list.

English menu comes automatically with non English staff, waiting for drinks too long, got first one then 5 minutes later another one - one person had nothing to drink so far!
Food quality average.

Well touristic place, touristic standards. If you do not care of your money, go there, it is looking nice.

Great price for breakfast. We both really enjoyed the omlet and scrambled egg breakfasts. The latte (cafe con leche) was outstanding. I could have had many cups of this! I'll go back for more really good coffee for sure!

everyone ranted and raved about the food here and while it was inexpensive, it was nothing special in my opinion.
