Lovely cosy restaurant with fantastic staff and wonderful food. View of beach is limited so would need to request those tables if you really wanted to look out but didn’t bother us at all. Cost was very good for what we had.

We booked on a Saturday night based on reviews. Surprisingly it wasn't full but that was no reflection on the food. The food is superb, the wine list extensive and the service excellent. All in a remarkably relaxed fashion.
