This place has an amazing location right on the beach near the lighthouse. The food we tried was average at best, the prices were pretty high for the product so you are really paying a premium for the location. It's a lovely setting so it...More

The beach backdrop enhances the restaurant’s contemporary decor and the seafood is plentiful. Our group of eight - on a short break to celebrate my milestone birthday - enjoyed it that much we frequented it twice in four days. The dishes - spanning sea bass,...More

Always seemed busy but think more down to location than anything else. Popped in for lunch but after a long wait for drinks we decided to eat elsewhere. Food looked ok but nothing special. Service very hot and miss.

We arrived initially for drinks but the service was so poor we went somewhere else to eat after. The drinks themselves were fine but were on the expensive side and the service was the nail in the coffin for us. We waited ten minutes to...More

What a fantastic meal out, the staff were friendly and polite, the fish was filleted at the table the steaks were cooked perfectly and the coffee was lovely. The price fair considering the service and location I would recommend this place and visit again

Great place to eat and have a drink overlooking the sea. The service is good and the food as always is superb. A must.

The great location and upbeat buzz of the pace lured us in, but the food was average at best, the service incredibly rude, slow and aloof and a non-alcoholic mojito cost the same as an alcoholic one! I would suggest you go to K1 instead,...More
