The view is lovely and service is friendly. However, I made the mistake of ordering spaghetti bolognese, which is simply inedible, fortunately the portion was quite small. The tomato soup was also quite bland.

We stopped here for lunch & sat next to the beach. The food was good & the service too. The atmosphere was friendly & serene. An ideal spot for a long lunch in the sun. The sea lapping at the shore adds to the ambiance.
