Limited menu, difficulty in contacting chef to ask which dishes have msg (most do) I think the waitress forgot our order. Husband's fish was good, my calamari was delicious, appetizer of mussels delicious but very small, wine list expensive

Fresh hake and next to the communal pool. Had the mussels and tiger prawns and a few too many delicious beers. Service was outstanding. Must do for a casual lunch / dinner and definitely highly recommended!
