Prime location but not the best quality food in town. In September I had the misfortune to get a bad portion of grilled prawns which led to an inconvenient night.

It was my birthday and what better present. One of my favorite restaurants. Here I found plenty of fresh fish and seefood and a exceptional view to the beach. What can I ask for more?
