We spent most mornings enjoying the high level sea views at this bar. They do food but our time there is not at a mealtime. We have been there also on many earlier holidays and the staff are so friendly and efficient. Anita, Andrea, Andy and Peter make you so welcome

Stopped here by chance today for lunch and what a pleasant surprise it was. Goats cheese salad beautifully presented with crushed walnuts , a cheese omelette perfectly cooked with a side salad and hand cut chips. The staff are very helpful and attentive and you have a lovely view from the terrace. This one is well worth a visit ,... More
