The location is stunning you are on the beach, go just before sunset it’s just lovely and stay long enough for moon rise. The food is delicious simply prepared all organic. Don’t miss this one if your in this area.

First class service, beautiful location and great food. Altough it is very popular in the evenings, everything works as it should; food doesn’t take a long time, atmosphere is relaxed.. Will recommend to all my friends!

We went there on the recommendation from our apartment owner. Nice location and delicious food. Try the fennel pie, wonderful! Good selection of local dishes. Recommended place for a nice family evening with the view on the waves!
