First class seafood restaurant with other dishes available if you are not a fish lover. Beautifully presented food with great taste and flavours.

Had an amazing choice of fish to eat... but not warned of the price beforehand! Wine list was excellent as was the (Scorpion Fish) when in arrived, Mallorcan style. Service very attentive and ambience and position could not be faulted!
