Great lunch venue, reasonable pricing. I had Cerviche & nachos which was more than enough, with beer £7.50. Nice sea views

Had lunch at this restaurant. It has a good vibe right over the road from the beach. I had the local catch of the day which was mahi mahi and it was delicious.

Good location. Service was not very good. Food was mediocre - quesadillas were soggy and the nachos were more like a salad. The food tasted okay.
