A hidden gem of the locals, their shared seafood platter is so fresh and reasonably priced and you get to sit away from the seagulls! And have a decent glass wine and beer with it.

Very generous proportions. Servings too big for ladies. Fantastic views. Bottled wine very reasonably priced. Upgrades underway with a chair lift for the elderly. Good to see.
