The choice of dishes is large, the portions generous, the food tasty. The location is really nice, right on the beach with candles in the evening, could be quite romantic. The only thing we had there that was disappointing was a passion fruit juice that...More

Amazing place to chill and enjoy the sunset by drinking caipirinhas and eating delicious food. Nice and friendly staff which fulfilled our special wish: extra cheese:) we can recommend the apero-plate (olives, dryed tomatoes, extra cheese..) which surprised us by size and taste!

This is one of a string of restaurants on the beach just outside the center of town that don't actually have addresses (as far as I know). Others of its ilk are included in major guide books, like Foder's. I'd really like to give this restaurant a review because it was amazing food, fantastic atmosphere, and wonderful, English-speaking staff (a rarity on the island). Thanks!
