Good destination and location for brunch....intended to have lunch but this only served from 12:30 on weekends. Nontheless, breakfast menu included old favourites as well as some other interesting dishes. We had four different dishes, all good. Service friendly and efficient.

We had amazing breakfasts at Sotano. Fresh ingredients, tasty and not the normal egg & bacon. Serve a very good Cappuccino

Loved our breakfast at this place. Eggs Benedictine were nicely prepared, not too heavy! Service slightly slow which is a compliment. Great location on the beach drive. You feel connected with the beach and the locals. Will return!

Came here with a group of friends after a long walk on the Promenade. Friendly but not particularly efficient staff - waited ages to place our drinks order. We then ordered a selection of Sushi & Tapas which were lovely & well priced. Some of...More
