Extremely busy place to be. Very popular with the locals. We just had drinks there and there were nice drink specials. You can eat there. Outside on the decks need some tender loving care though. Inside looked great.

Ok not bad place to sit down have a drink and chat and look over the sea. Not to expensive and music is not to loud.

The service was terrible. Our food came 30 minutes apart. We had to fetch the cutlery ourselves, because they never brought it with the food. When the food finally made it to the table after waiting longer than an hour, it was completely cold.
