Situated right on the beach (sit too close and you’ll get your feet wet in the sea), this is the perfect place for a morning coffee, afternoon cocktail or evening meal. With a great ambience and friendly staff you can easily spend a few hours...More

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!
