Great atmosphere and the best food on the island. Nothing is too much trouble for the very attentive staff and owner Brian. Enjoyable evening with friends and an appetiser on the house after our meal!

High recommendations to any travellers that are in the area of Xaghra. This restaurant has wonderful staff, service & food. As a Coeliac they worked wonders for me and I had the most delicious gluten-free pasta dish and my family also enjoyed wonderful food.
