Really nice place to eat by the beautiful beach. Very good service, food quantity and quality was excellent. Also they make a superb sangria moscato 😀 price was about 25 euros per head including a fair amount of alcohol. Highly recommended.

I will not have choose this place for lunch. The food and service were disappointing. The place look nice, but don't use your money here! Try The Dolphin instead.

Average food that you could live with if it wasn;t for the staff nearly knocking people over when walking between kitchen and restaurant. 'Manners aren't us' would be a better name and I would not visit here again if paid.More
