The restaurant serves great food at a reasonable cost. Service is lacking at times. They always take your drink and food order, but when waiting for the bill, it can take up to 20 minutes to get it. Servers do not speak English at all.

The location was nice directly on the beach. We love seafood. We had ordered grill fish, grill cutlefish, French fries and Gambas pil pil. Gambas pil pil was excellent. The other dishes were average. The service was ok.

A group of friends spent a day at the beach nearby this restaurant and we came here to have lunch and dinner. The food and the service were perfect and the prices reasonable. Totally recommended!

Delighted to find such a well located restaurant (it's almost in the waves) that has a good selection of meat and vegetarian dishes as I am allergic to fish and shellfish. Good selection of wines. The tortillas are made for sharing.

This place does not look that inviting from the road but once you are on the beach side of the restaurant it's lovely - right on the beach itself. We had dinner of fried aubergines , freshly made with the local black honey and then...More
