A Nice small restaurant with the best octopus in town. And the best rice of all times. Sadly they didn't have sparkling water.... Must visit and reserve before.

If you go there it's for octopus! It is the best octopus rice I have ever eaten! Small room but great kitchen! :) And it's near the beach.
