We had lunch at this beautiful location, the location of a recent film starring Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie. They serve the local catch of the day written on a large blackboard. They serve meat in the form of burgers & such, but you’d be...More

There's a small terraced area with sunbeams where you can relax and and a narrow stairway leading to the water where you can swim in a picturesque narrow fjord. The restaurant is great, the service is very friendly, and the chef is Italian, so it's...More

Beutiful bay, nice cafe but most expensive we have found on the Island. One tea and granual coffee €4.5o usually only €2 in every other bay cafe, beware. I guess that's why the divers were eating & drinking their own?

A great little quite secluded bay with cafe facilities etc selling good food at reasonable prices. Crystal clear water ideal for swimming/snorkelling etc. The only downside to Get there it's a long winding very narrow and very steep road in places.

I don't think tht there are any - but the restaurant has got toilets for sure so you can use those, if the need occurs.
