Friendly staff, great food and a beautiful beach just across the street. They have a wide range of food to choose from. On a warm summers day t would be the perfect place to have a bite to eat after a mid morning swim.

This place has a nice view, and a choice of outdoor, indoor, and semi-outdoor spaces to suit any weather. The food is tasty, with decent portions, and creative use of fresh ingredients.
