Very good place, some prices were somewhat unreasonably expensive but we still had a great meal. The Gambas al ajillo were a bit salty and scarce yet the Barbecue Salmon was excellent. Another dish we had was the Salmon Ravioli- the stairway to heaven.

Great views of the beach and «peninsula», good ambientation. Affordable prices, and if you like fish and seafood, you must go there. Friendly staff. If you want the best places, must book.
