This restaurant is literally 50 yards from the beach. The workers are kind and give great suggestions for those not sure what they want. It is a bit expensive, but if you are on vacation, you prepared for this.

The location of the restaurant is great, right in front of the beach. I would go there again just for the view in the beach.
