We discovered this hidden gem a year ago and are delighted to find the service has only improved! The fresh barbecue is probably the best on the beach and is a delight to watch your fish being so expertly prepared.

We ordered bbq which was a great choice because the ones we ordered from the menu wasn't good. A bit too salty though for the food served here. The fresh seafood is priced by weight which they will inform in advance.

We were recommended by a friend and she was right. The service is the best on the beach. We enjoyed our food both times we visited. Good selection on the menu and beers cheaper than other restaurants. The lobster is a must.

Really enjoyed the lunch we had here. My husband had the tuna (highly rated by him) and I had the vegetable noodles also delicious. Lovely waiter and on nice part of the beach. Very quick service. Would go back.

Hi Kieran, Um I'm not too sure about serving the beer and wine but they'll definitely be open because they're beach restaurants. But hope you managed to find out! Sorry I can't be of any more help.
