We stopped for drinks and lunch. The service was slow to non existent. We sat at the bar and they were not busy at all. The food was ok, and the atmosphere was ok.

Great spot right on the beach. Some of our group had drinks and said they were very good. The food was very good and large portions. The pictures are from the shopping area by the restaurant.
