The breathtaking view is the best! But the food is also good and recommended... I had a local fish with grilled vegetables and a nice antipasto before. Friendly staff and nice interior. Would go there anytime again!

The whole experience was fabulous. We wandered in off the street, were greeted warmly and introduced to the chef. Then we were offered a table on the terrace over the beach with lovely views over the bay and forthcoming sunset. Our waiter was very attentive,...More
