You can sit here watching the sunset and locals while playing soccer at the beach. the food is good, the atmosphere is relaxed, service is nice. From 17:00 - 19:00 they have happy hour for drinks. Cocktails are not so good..

Excellent service, great food! The chef and waitress were very accommodating to me and my dietary requirements, what they did not have on the menu was prepared in a few moments with a smile. Drinks were flowing!

We went for dinner. Each had some sort of pasta dish. Food was fine and price reasonable. I noticed many were there for just drinks. It was a lovely spot for sunset. It was not fancy. It was fun to watch those on the beach.

We happened across this place by accident, but we really enjoyed it. We had a few drinks and liked the ambience. A bonus was the cat who seemed to reside there who came and sat on our laps.

Came in the early evening to enjoy some drinks for sunset. The service here was very unfriendly, we didn't feel welcomed at all. And the drinks we ordered were unmemorable. Would not come here again, so many other places to give your money to.

Took us 1,5 hours to get the food, and the food was mediocre. Apparently they had ran out of rice, but instead of telling us that they made us wait more than an hour. Would not recommend for dinner hours. Although the view is nice.

My friends and I frequently visited here due to its proximity to the beach. It offers a great view, especially with the sunset, as well as local late afternoon football. A range of local beers, and a happy hour from 5-7. A nice relaxing spot
