The girl taking food orders at lunch on 15.7 was evidently having a dreadful day. No mention of please or thank you, no idea how to smile. No concept of customer service. Just dreadful front of house experience. If you don’t like your job, change...More

Been recommended to us by friends so expectations were quite high. Service was slow and a bit casual. Good location overlooking the beach but the water is not visible at night from most tables. Quite good value but depends on what you choose. Fish and...More

A waitress thrusted a menu at me and told me to go (presumably to find my own table). I tried to get another waitress to answer a question and she walked right past me. We left after this!!!

Food is good. A very relaxed family atmosphere with a play area for children. Informal tables. No table service. Wine a bit pricey. Tropical setting.

Loved our dinner so much we came back the second night in a row! The salmon fillet was outstanding and the salt and pepper calamari melted in your mouth. A beautiful, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Casual but food DELICIOUS!
