Really friendly place to eat, we've often had breakfast or lunch there but not dinner. Freshly cooked and excellent, this last week we had grilled sea bream for lunch on our last day and it was perfectly done and tasted wonderful. Next visit we intend to come for one of their Turkish evenings which have been recommended by friends. Ali... More

We stumbled across this while staying at garden of sun. We visited in the afternoon, they gave us cash back and looked after our stuff while we went to the beach. Nothing was too much to ask. We went back in the evening for family night. This was great, they did kids games and played the kids favourite party songs... More

Ideally located next to the beach. Friendly waiters where nothing is a problem. Offer collection and drop off service. Food was nice. It is a little off the beaten track so constantly asked to come in the evening. Not a bad little restaurant

Restaurant is in a good location right on beachfront very close to sea. Food is very good especially if you want snacks during a hot day, ie burgers, sandwiches, salads. Nice friendly staff who greet you with a warm visit. Good place to go when on 3rd beach.
