When and if you go there make sure Maria is working. She is the life and soul of the restaurant. You must have the milkshake it is made with fresh fruit and loads of ice cream (yummy). Also try the fish dishes if you like fish that is the fresh every day. Enjoy your self and relax there. 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

First port of call in the day is to the friendly welcome of this water front spot. A good English breakfast for a few euros and a fine beer for afterwards.
