We went there 3 times during our stay in the area. Food was always nice and fresh. Try king prawns and octopus Portuguese style. Very busy during lunch time, less people in the events. Better to book.

Lovely views off the beach. Could select your preference of fresh fish which was filleted in front of you and seasoned perfectly. Had a couple of cocktails that were delicious and service was fast and staff were attentive .

Visited late afternoon for early dinner and was not disappointed. Best fish kebabs we've eaten anywhere, had the Monkfish and Prawn ones. Excellently served with theatre and style, by friendly staff. Stunning setting right on the beach.

Excellent location for lunch on the beach. Went twice, the warmer it is the busier it is so timing is everything!
