“No air kisses for touristas.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

The setting of this restaurant is fantastic as is the food... Though you won't find a salad on the menu or much in the way of vegetables at all. The various versions of fish carpaccio are dynamite and almost everything I've tried I've really enjoyed. The dishes are inventive and tasty. The service is ok but the attention from the top verges on disdain. This is off putting. The experience is better at lunch.

The chef is Italian and he is not afraid to cook! The flavours are amazing! The menu changes every day.The location, on the beach, is stunning. Even the bathroom is gorgeous!

The setting of the restaurant on the coast is beautiful and the food was amazing. Different specials every night. Had seafood soup that was delicious and a greek chicken and broccoli pastry. Excellent. Gin and tonics are huge and tasty!

We scored the best table in the house...just the two of us enjoying and undisturbed ocean view. The food was delicious, fresh ideas and super unique. We are experienced eaters and know good quality. We loved the setting and presentation.
