We ate in front of the sea at dinner, the atmosphere was super. The fish was very good and so was the pasta. The service was excellent too. We recommend it

Had a thai salad to share then swordfish and fish pasta followed by a shared dessert. All excellent with good house wine. Service quick. Lovely setting on promenade overlooking sea and beach. Great value.

Me and my husband both had a steak with sauce. The steak was cooked perfectly and the sauce was full of flavour. The waiter was very friendly and the price for the steak reasonable. The restaurant is small but very cosy. Highly recommend!
