This place was much better then expected. After drinks across the street, we needed to get some real food in our bellies. The ingredients were very fresh, the service was pleasant and the wait time was minimal.

Close to beach area. Nice place, one of the few places where you can sit outside. The service was very good, the food was fine, but not special.

The neighbours from our beach rental told us to try it, not dissatisfied! Superb food, reasonably priced, portions very generous so don't over order.
