We had a lovely meal at this restarant. The price was average for the area, but the food was certainly above average. The service was very friendly and efficient and in the week we stayed in the resort this meal was one of the best.

Top notch food. The John Dory and lemon sole was excellent as we're the desserts. We chose the Chenin Blanc to go with our meal. Wasn't the most expensive but was a great tasty addition. Heartily recommended to all.
