Situated overlooking the sea this is a really excellent restaurant. Beautiful ultra modern decor, an excellent menu including fish, beef and lamb combine with a friendly and professional staff. The wine list complements the food perfectly. Prices are reasonable too. Hope to return.

Been here for the third time in this easter. Even though is a bit expensive, its really worth it. Sublime food and very friendly staff. You have to try the gulas and the carpaccio paté. One of a kind!
