Fantastic beachfront location! The selection of seafood is great, fresh, varied and fantastic .The service is very good. It is a bit pricey so be prepared, but if you want great seafood in a great location you will not be disappointed.

Visited on three occasions - fresh, light, expertly done food. Great choice of fresh seafood, great setting and styling. Nautical theme running through everything from the decor to staff uniforms. It has a bit of a Miami vibe with a white courtyard and an enormous pool surrounded by palm trees and not another building in sight. The terrace overlooking the... More

It was good but pricy, now pricy but 25% more expensive since our last visit. Small portions, with high price. Miss the comfy out side couches . Will not return.

The place is an authentic seafood restaurant with waterfront location and great view to the sea. It has a large variety of fresh sea food offering as one would expect.

Ate dinner here the other night. Service, position and ambience spot on. Great shame about the food. Not only is the menu boring but the fish was overcooked. Also pretty pricey. For two starters three mains and two coffees and a bottle of wine over E140.
