The warm welcome and the attentive and caring service are the outstanding characteristics of this 1A beach restaurant. The food quality is near to perfect. Try the fish in salt crust and the prawns in garlic sauce for starters!

I don't know if there is a children's menu but while I have seen kids there I don't associate it with a place I would take kids. It is a little too expensive and the ambiance if definitely more adult
