What a complete surprise. We had the most delicious lunch sitting almost on the beach then returned for Dinner for the Seafood Night - 5 courses of the tastiest, freshest food and the last course of a pannacotta was perfect. Great service and atmosphere too....More

The owner himself came to pick us up to bring us to the restaurant from the other side of the island. The food was awesome, the desserts as well and the service impeccable. Don't miss this fine dining experience.

The view is only surpassed by the food. Great place for an evening meal. Happy Hour prices until 6PM. The sand floor makes for a very casual atmosphere. The wait staff is very efficient. Would definitely go back.More
