The ambience in the evening is extremely romantic and intimate, candles adorn the beach all the way to the restaurant creating a beautiful atmosphere. Reservations recommended.

We are situated next to the Church of St. Paul, we offer Gazebo double beds with curtains and wooden sun beds with waitress service to the beach, The car park above beach has ample parking for a large amount of cars and buses and is situated directly below the football grounds as you descend down the road towards St. Paul's Bay Church.

“Not Your Usual Beach Bar”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

On St Pauls Beach and beautiful. This is not your usual beach bar. Here you wont get toasties sandwiches etc. This is a beach restaurant. After reading the reviews I had to try and wasn't disappointed.
We had pitta to start with this was beautiful warm with salt smoked paprika and olive oil a real must.
I had the most beautifully cooked calamari and my husband had the stuffed squid which was amazing.
You sit looking at the sea, really wish we had gone at night as well just for the food and the experience.
Staff and owners were wonderfully friendly.
This place is not cheap but is worth it.

“Average food, beautiful setting”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

My boyfriend and I decided to eat here on the last night of our holiday purely because of it's romantic setting. We booked our table for 9pm, by which time the beach was lined with candles to create a perfect setting. I ordered swordfish which came with grilled veg and salad, and my boyfriend ordered a Caesar salad. The food was VERY salty, however I assume this was to fit the beach side location. Food aside, this restaurant was definitely worth a visit

Setting is amazing day or night. Beautiful candle light on an evening on the beach with a view out to sea. The staff are so welcoming and the food is amazing! we went three times, and it was of a very high standard on every visit.
