Food was not bad, but this restaurant is incredibly overpriced. I would not recommend this place in a million years. It's a bloody scam. Believe me. Facilities very poor , considering the prices they charge you. 3,80€ for a f ... beer? Is that fair?...More

This is a lovely restaurant to sit down and enjoy a late lunch for a couple of hours with a sea view and great people watching on a Sunday. It reminds me of the cafe society. If you are in a hurry, this isn't your...More
