This is a great place with a great with. The food is always super fresh, crispy and sizzling hot on the plate. I went there almost every day for a snack or full meal. Food is served within minuts.

Simple but nice staff and fresh and tasty food. Nice spot on the shade on the beach with a view. You can enjoy a massage and a cold beer on a transat.
