We ate here several times as it was so good! Owner very friendly and made us a selection of mezes after asking what we liked. Food excellent. Wine good. We were sat 5 metres away from the sea. Heaven.

The position right on the beach is beautiful and the welcome is as warm as the sun. The food is well cooked and plentiful and there is lots of choice.
