Average food and service. Very nice location with a fine seaview. We asked for something special beacause one i our party celebratet her birthday. They had no such things as a special desert or drink and didn't bother to make any effort.

Swordfish top notch, grilled tuna steak also very nice. Sadly a medium steak is too much for the chef. Returned the first as it was past even well done. The replacement was absolutely cremated. They tried twice to cover a poorly cooked steak with pepper...More
