Agreed, about 20 minutes in a taxi. Super restaurant in a brilliant location. Make sure you book in advance and request a terrace table.

We always recommend making a reservation but we also welcome walk-ins. We might not always be able to offer tables, especially sea side tables, to walk-ins but we usually have some space at the bar for small parties.
