Fantastic location and architecture on the beach. We had seafood and fish and presentation, service and quality was excellent. Really and outstanding place with views that are unimaginable. It is costly, not an everyday restaurant, but worth it.

Ate here twice in a week which nearly bankrupted us admittedly but the food is absolutely amazing. I think you could order anything off the menu and it would be outstanding. Cannot recommend more highly for a special, if pricey, experience

A fancy beach hut that is one hell of a treat. We were here on easter Sunday and I'm glad we booked. Delicious fresh fish in a very upbeat atmosphere. The only room for improvement would be the speed of service

I don't know if there is a children's menu but while I have seen kids there I don't associate it with a place I would take kids. It is a little too expensive and the ambiance if definitely more adult
