The is probably the only restaurant/snack bar on the beach. It appears they have widened the outside terrace and I think it better for it. We only stopped here once, the day we we sunbathing on the beach, for a spot of lunch. We had 2 of their sandwiches (filled rolls) and a few beers. The service was excellent and the rolls made fresh and very tasty (3.80 euros each). It can;t be a bad place because there were plenty of locals eating here!! Defo recommend it.

This restaurant has taken full advantage of its location. It's actually on the beach, my husband and I met a friend for a drink before a hard days work on the beach, sunbathing. We met at 12 and left at 5. We had a few drinks in a great atmosphere and friendly staff after catching up we had a great meal, fresh from the fish cabinet a Dorada, wonderful the staff here are great.

Great food, I am my partner shared a golden bream with squid that was creamy and crispy. Not sure what other people have been too here, maybe they just went and had the snacks menu part,

If you know good food and want to try local cuisine serves well by friendly staff then this is a must see.

Go to the counter and ask for the fresh catch of the day fish and then cook that up. Not always use the set menu

This new bar on the beach front looks like it's location might add a premium to the cost. But in fact it was one of the cheapest places to stop for a drink or a nibble. The Hake fillet was amongst the tastiest fish we ate during our time here. So for a light lunch, a morning coffee or just a beer in the sun I would recommend this bar above all others. The staff were also really friendly.
