The menu has a wide choice of dishes. Best are those prepared with the fresh, local seafood. I adored the fish prepared on a bed of salt. They organized a special chocolate almond cake for a birthday.

Great views of the sea from the balcony. The food was pretty good and the service was good too but the best thing about this restaurant is the location.
