This is a little bit off the main track but what a little gem, we had a salad washed down with the nicest white sangria in town, definitely worth a visit.

Fresh, plentiful and gorgeous. There is a choice of tapas all freshly made on the premises. Fabulous value. The cafe overlooks the sea. Very friendly staff. Only open between 10.30 and 18.00. Perfect for lunch or early tea

Great gelato. Plenty of flavours to choose from. And if they don't have it out, they will get what you want out of the back. The Pistacio and the Caramelo are my favourites.
