We have stayed in the area for years and we always come back to this restaurant. You can't beat the fresh, delicious fish. The service is always fantastic; I can't fault any of their friendliness. Will be coming back again this Summer.

A great place to sample the fruits of the ocean. A buzzy situation on the seafront. Friendly staff help with difficult choices. We demolished a large stone bass. Recommended.
