After a hard morning relaxing on the beach this is a great place for lunch. Relaxed, but not slow, service. Good range of choices and all freshly prepared too. Good preparation for a hard d, but lazy, afternoon back on the beach. Zzzzxzzz!

The staff seems to be bored. From the other hand, the food is, generally, good. It has traditional dishes (rabbit with archokes, lamp with yogurt, etc).

Beside one of the best beaches in the area, great lunchtime spot. Very busy on a Sunday. Delicious grilled sea bream. Good value. No charge for the sunbeds on the beach. Would definitely return.
