This is quite a small restaurant so it might be advisable to book although we were lucky on the night. The one waiter was really friendly and helpful and the food was very good. I had swordfish steak which was delicious.

Had the Piri piri chicken which Is cooked on the BBQ with potatoes and salad. Very tasty. The house white wine was very drinkable especially at 3 Euros a half litre! Small family run, definitely recommend

This looks like a very basic restaurant which may put some off but the food is really good. The owner cooks on the barbecue and dies a really good job. It's a typical family restaurant. The owner may seem a little miserable but it's just...More
