We went here for dinner last night and we weren’t disappointed. It’s n a really good location overlooking the bay and being overlooked by rolling hills. It appeared clean and well run. Service was good despite being really busy. The staff were helpful and friendly. The menu was not sophisticated, however, there burgers and pizzas were really really good. My youngest enjoyed scampi which was lovely. If your hearing isn’t great like mine then you’ll struggle acoustically with the back ground noise. The toilets were clean. Overall we had a nice evening, good food and good service.

Stayed here for a few nights. The food was really nice and the staff were helpful. Very short walk from the beach. The room was standard and the bathroom was nice.
