Service was ok. The view is out of this world. The food serviced was well presented and tasty. Please do something about the toilets, its disgusting. Don’t know how you get away with it. Don’t want to see what the kitchen looks like.

Rustic beach/harbour restaurant with seating inside, or outside or under a little bit elevated tent. One can unfortunately NOT recommend the restrooms, which is poorly maintained, which is...More
