We ate here twice and the food was wonderful especially the lamb! We watched the sunset over the sea, very romantic! The family that run it are lovely, we would definitely go back.

A family run business, great local cooking with excellent service. My favourite is the sea bass superbly cooked on the grill. It is cooked whole but a simple request and they will remove the bone. Nothing is too much trouble.
