Eaten in so many places in the area over the years and been recommended to go to other places for the best steaks but all have fallen short of this place. Not cheap, do book you will not be disappointed. Top points from us.

The restaurant is on the seaside. During the dinner time my son could play on the beach and we could see him and eat with the quietly. The service level is high, and the quality of meat, super!

Open 13:00 til 16:00 and from 19:00 to 23:00 - but reserve a table. Even if they have empty tables they are quite capable of not offering you one! Truly don´t know what their thinking is there. I have watched them turn... More

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. We were staying nearby and took a chance and were lucky. Only open in the evenings apart from at weekends although that might differ in the high season
