Piperia has an imaginative menu using local ingredients. The service is pleasant and attentive. The location is fantastic. Don't be put off by the appearance at the front (we were for ages - what a waste).

Really good food and atmosphere. Quiet, genuinely family run. Right on the beach. View from road is a bit off-putting but the general TripAdvisor vibe is accurate.
