We had a lovely evening at this friendly restaurant. The price was very reasonable. You can eat in the open air next to the harbour. The pizzas were made to order and very cheesy. The drinks were lovely. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We loved this place, we were not too hungry so decided to share a pizza and salad between us. Everything was wonderful and we loved it. Loved the lights as well dangling down round the edge of the roof as well.

We didn't ask for that wine however they do have a very well stocked bar, so possibly they have. If not I wouldn't let it stop you from having a meal there.
