This is a laid back spot to have an ice cold beer, great food, with an awesome view. We frequent this place as often as we can. If you're in PSJ, make a point of visiting The Delicious Monster.

We had the mini meze platter as starter and the queen prawns and shawarma as main course. It was really delicious ;) and you have a nice view over second beach. The place looks cosy and well organised. The personnel is very kind as well....More
